How lovely it is to walk up the garden and breathe in the sweet, heady scent of sweet peas, a strongly scented variety, the hardy annual Sweet Pea, Old Fashioned Scented Mix does just that. A great mix of small-flowered, but with the good old fashioned perfume we associate with sweet peas which were the forbears of our modern varieties.

Sow on a window sill or in a greenhouse at approx 15-20°C on the surface of a good seed compost, firm down and keep compost damp but not too wet, transplant seedlings, spacing them out to 50mm apart, when established plant on your trellis, obelisk or cane wigwam at approx. 20cm.
