Sow sweet pea seeds indoors in October for transplanting outdoors in spring, or direct sow outdoors from March to April.


In autumn, sow 3 seeds per 7.5cm (3") pot at a depth of 1cm (½") in free-draining, seed sowing compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) until germination which takes 10-21 days. Once germinated, grow sweet peas on in cooler conditions, before transferring to a cold frame for overwintering. Spring sowings can be made outdoors directly into drills at a depth of 2.5cm (1"), and a distance of 7.5cm (3") apart. Pinch out the growing points of each stem once the second pair of leaves has opened to encourage bushier growth.


In spring, plant out sweet peas at a distance of 23cm (9") apart in any well drained garden soil in full sun. Train the stems onto a suitable support such as trellis or a free standing climbing frame. Try using our sweet pea support rings to tie the stems to their growing supports while they become established.

Feed and water sweet peas regularly throughout the growing season. When growing sweet peas it is essential to cut the flower stems frequently and deadhead faded blooms to prevent seedpods developing. This will encourage more blooms to be produced and extend the flowering period throughout summer.

  1. Rare Variety of Sweet Pea

    By Zulfiqar Ilahi 05-10-2015

    I have just received my seed order. Many thanks. This variety of sweet pea is very rare to find in the UK, so many thanks for offering these seeds. I grew this variety many years ago before T&M offered it here. I had to order the seeds from Australia. So well done for sourcing these seeds. I was wondering why you have discontinued selling the 'Apple Blossom' variety of sweet pea? This too is a very rare variety and now nigh impossible to source in the UK. Also may I ask why your seeds packets do not have a 'sow by date' on them? This would be very helpful to many of your customers. But otherwise your seeds are excellent value and never fail to impress me. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you very much for your review. I am glad that you have been happy with your purchase. We do like to rotate our stock and offer new varieties every season. Unfortunately this may mean that older varieties may become unavailable. We do include a sow-by date on our vegetable seed packets as they do need to be sown at more specific times to flowers. Flower seed can be sown at almost any time (sowing months are advised in our catalogues and on our website). If you do have any further queries, you are welcome to contact us.
