Sweet Pea Top to Bottom

The delicious scent of Sweet Peas is one of the delights of summer! Sweet Pea ‘Top to Bottom’ won’t disappoint you. This colourful mix of perfumed Lathyrus have been selected for their free-flowering habits, with blooms from the base of the plants to the tips! Flowering early, and continuing over a long period with regular picking, they make fabulous cut flowers with mid-length stems – perfect for summer bouquets!

Sowing
Sow sweet pea seeds indoors in October for transplanting outdoors in spring, or direct sow outdoors from March to April.

In autumn, sow 3 seeds per 7.5cm (3″) pot at a depth of 1cm (½”) in free-draining, seed sowing compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) until germination which takes 10-21 days. Once germinated, grow sweet peas on in cooler conditions, before transferring to a cold frame for overwintering. Spring sowings can be made outdoors directly into drills at a depth of 2.5cm (1″), and a distance of 7.5cm (3″) apart. Pinch out the growing points of each stem once the second pair of leaves has opened to encourage bushier growth.

In spring, plant sweet peas outdoors at a distance of 23cm (9″) apart in any well drained garden soil in full sun. Train the stems onto a suitable support such as trellis or a free standing climbing frame.
