Description

A very glamorous thing. Dark, luscious colour with amazing scent and good stem length. Scent 9/10.

No garden is complete without sweet peas. Grow them over arches, teepees and trellis and plant them with your runner beans to draw lots of insect pollinators into your veg patch.

Care Tips

Plant seedlings out during a mild spell March-May, providing support. Tie the stems into your framework on a regular basis and pinch out tendrils.
