OUR TIPS
When it comes to sweet peas, sowing them in the early Autumn, in cylinder style root training pots is great to do. We give ours a good half day soak to start off. Your plant will be stronger from overwintering and thrive in spring weeks before other sweet peas spring up.

BRINGS TO YOUR GARDEN
They're easy to grow, and fill out a space in a garden, especially for those starting from the beginning and want to fill some empty beds quick.

HARVESTING
Use for cut flowers, early spring posies around the house. Dead head often to encourage more flowering.

MAKES FOR GREAT..
Cut flowers for a vase.
Quick garden flowers.
