Sweet Pea Flowers

Now is the perfect time to plant sweet pea seeds.

They’re a big seed, so it’s easy to do – get the kids and grand-kids to join in!

If you soak the seed overnight in cool water, they’ll germinate more readily. Sweet peas have a long taproot so you’ll need to make sure they have lots of room to grow if you’re starting them off in pots rather than directly into the ground.

If you’re growing the climbing varieties, fix up some trellis, wires, or netting for them in advance, ready to scramble over and cling on to. If you don’t have the room for a climbing sweet pea, we have a dwarf version too, that grows low and shrubby.
