The best of the best, with exhilarating fragrance and colourful, fancy blooms. A traditional 'Spencer' type ideal for cutting, garden decoration or exhibiting. Superb for arches, trellises, obelisks, etc.
Feed and water 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.
Caution: Seeds are harmful if eaten.
Where to sow: Start off in a seed tray or pots. Preparation: Soak seeds overnight in tepid water. Fill a seed tray or 7.5cm (3in) pots with good, free draining, damp, seed compost. Sowing in spring: Sow 1cm (1/2in) deep 7.5cm (3in) apart or 3 seeds per 7.5cm (3in) pot, place pots in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and keep at around 20-25C (68-77F) until germination (approx. 7-21 days). Don’t exclude light as this helps germination. Alternatively sow outdoors, 2.5cm (1in) deep, in drills 7.5cm (3in) apart. Growing: Plant into their final flowering positions in spring once the ground has warmed, 23-30cm (9-12in) apart. Pinch out the growing point once the second pair of leaves has opened. Water freely in dry weather. Train the stems onto a support such as trellis. Cut flower stems frequently and deadhead faded blooms. This will encourage more blooms and extend the flowering period. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten
