How to Grow

In mild areas seeds can be sown in pots in the autumn, overwintered in a sheltered spot and planted out in spring. Everywhere else, sow seeds 10-12 weeks before the last frost and plant out right around the last frost. Provide a strong trellis or support to support the vines.

Harvesting | Vase Life
To maximise vase life, harvest your Sweet peas when there are at least two unopened flowers at the tip. Flowers can be picked when flowers are more open however this will mean that your vase life will be shorter. Sweet peas are considered a short-lived cut flower, lasting at best 4-5 days in a vase. Adding a source food, either sugar or flower food to the water will help to extend the vase life by a few more days.
