Description

Good long stems with many flowers on a stem and TONS of flowers on the plants. This did well in the Parham sweet pea trial I wrote about for The Telegraph in 2017. We then trialled it at Perch Hill last summer and we loved it’s simple cheeriness. Good scent 8/10.

Care Tips

Remove the climbing tendrils as they grow. Tie the stem into your framework on a regular basis. Can be grown in deep container pots up a climbing frame. Find out how to cordon train your sweet pea in Sarah's how-to guide.
