1 Packet (25 Sweet Pea Seeds) (TT06422)
Caution: Seeds are harmful if eaten.
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 (1/2") 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.

the one to grow 2013-08-19
I am in love with this variety! Although I am an experienced gardener I had never attempted annual sweet peas. However, I saw this variety in a local open garden and had to try this year. Although I didn't have any success growing in the ground the greenhouse sown seeds survived and have been a delight. The colour is so subtle and, dare I say, 'designery' and the fragrance very strong. It has been a pleasure giving bunches to family and friends who have all swooned at Matucana's delights. I shall be growing this one forever!
delicious fragrance and understated beauty 2011-08-21
My third year growing this variety, faster to develop than the blousier spencer types I've grown previously, and longer lasting too, both in the ground and the vase; the fragrance is just superb, wonderful to grow a little piece of history too.
