DescriptionThis variety has now sold out. You may like Sweet Pea 'Painted Lady' instead.
Soft rose pink, with gently ruffled petals and good, long stems, we loved this one in our 2019 trials. Good scent.
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.
