More Details

Sweet Pea 'Hi-Scent' has large, showy flowers of a modern variety and excellent scent in white with beautiful purple feathering. Scent 10/10.

This is a modern grandiflora sweet pea. The recent breeding triumph has to be the incredible new band of 'Modern Grandifloras' with all the royal cards in their hand. These have been developed to have large flowers, lots of them, with long stems of the Spencer types, with the bonus of fantastic scent of 'Matucana' and its early brigade.

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.

We sow our highly-scented, old-fashioned sweet pea seeds in the winter, as well as in the spring, so that you will have excellent productive plants throughout the summer. Our sweet pea seedlings come with full planting instructions.

Very few blooms and certainly not "Hi Scent".
