Description

Little Sweetheart Mixed Sweet Pea Seeds

A dwarf mix of sweet pea flowers that require no support growing around 25cm tall. This mix contains a mixture of white, pink, purple and violet flowers.

For early sweet peas sow using heat and undercover September to October and overwinter in a greenhouse or polytunnel with plenty of frost protection. January to March under glass, or April - May if no greenhouse is available for a flowering bloom June - September.

Soke the seeds overnight for 24hrs in water to aid in germination. Sow our sweet pea mix in fine light draining compost. Transplant the seedlings once large enough to handle and harden off before planting outside. Pinch out the tip of the plant to encourage side growth and stronger side shoots which provide more plant support and flowers. Pick regular once flowers are on display to continue encouraging growth and supply of flowers.
