Description

I love the dark, luscious ruby reds and ‘Winston Churchill’ is one of the best, with large individual flower heads and long stems. It’s a winner in our trials.

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.
