Description

Now you can grow a piece of history!

Sicilian monk Cupani sent seed of the wild Sweet Pea to Robert Uvedale of Enfield more than 300 years ago, and from this all our modern varieties are descended.

The flowers are small on short stems and the colour combination is striking and the scent is simply irresistible!

How to Guide

Sowing Indoors

Almost fill 12cm (5in) pots with moist seed compost. Sow five seeds, evenly spaced, per pot and lightly cover them with a little more compost.

Water well after sowing, but not again until seedlings have emerged. Place in warmth 10-15C (50-60F).

Sowing Outdoors

Sow seeds in pre-watered soil 2cm (1in) deep, 10cm (4in) apart. Keep soil moist until seedlings emerge.

Sowing Distance

20cm / 8in

Potting on/Thining Out

Grow on in unheated conditions, ideally in a cold frame. Pinch out the growing tips of plants produced from Jan-Mar sowings. Plant out 20cm (8in) apart from March onwards.

Aftercare

Support young plants with canes, netting or trellis to about 180cm (6ft). Pick the blooms regularly to ensure a continuous supply.
