How To Grow

Sow late Summer through to late Autumn – Spring too in cold districts, 12mm (1/2”) deep in flowering position. Thin out to 20cm (8”) apart. Prepare soil well with organic matter and compost about 1 month before sowing. Ensure soil is damp when sowing as this will usually negate any need for additional watering until seedlings appear.

Important Note

Sweet peas do not like 'wet feet' so it is for the reason we do not recommend pre-soaking your seeds prior to planting.
