A very special sweet pea!
The creamy buds open to large, fragrant, ruffled salmon blooms with a network of delicate veining all overlaid with an orange sheen.
A classic variety, freely producing beautiful bnlooms with a delightful scent.

How to Guide
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. Germinate at 10-15C (50-60F).
Sow 2cm/1in deep and 10cm / 4in apart. Keep soil moist until seedlings emerge.
Sowing Distance20cm / 8cm
Potting on/Thining Out
Grow on in unheated conditions, ideally in a cold frame. Pinch out the growing tips of plants produced from Jan-March sowings. Plant out 20cm (8in) apart from March onwards.
Support young plants with canes, netting or trellis to about 180cm (6ft). Pick the blooms regularly to ensure a continuous supply.
