Favourites with home gardeners since the eighteenth century, these need no introduction at all.
Plant any time from March to May.
In frost prone areas best to plant early Spring for summer flowers. Soak seed overnight in warm water. Prepared the planting area 2 weeks ahead of planting with compost. Sweet peas like a neutral pH 7.
Make rows about 3cm deep and plant seed 8cm apart. Don't water until they shoot or if the top centimetre dries out. Best to keep moist not wet or the seeds will rot.
The support needs to be high as they can grow to 2-3m tall. Picking the flowers regulary will encourage more flowers.
