Sow indoors for surest results, between January and March or September and October. 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, 5 seeds per 12 cm (5-inch) pot of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, greenhouse or cool windowsill. A temperature of 15 degrees Celsius (60 degrees Fahrenheit) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 12-21 days. Pinch out the growing tip, when two pairs of leaves have formed, to encourage bushy growth. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil. Between March and May, 30 cm (12-inches) apart. Support with tall canes or netting.

Or, sow outdoors for ease, April to May, where they are to flower, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Sow 2 seeds together, every 30 cm (12-inch). Remove weaker seedling, which can then be transplanted. Seeds sown in autumn generally flower earlier the following year. Enjoy the flowers from May to October. Pick blooms regularly to prolong the flowering season.

Hints and Tips: Seedlings are best protected against bird damage with a few short twigs. Autumn sowings should be overwintered in cool, but frost-free conditions.

    Lovely sweet peas with a strong fragrance! Gave Me plenty of blooms from June through to October. The only negative would be that they aren’t the blue colour as shown on the packet, more pink to lilac. Still beautiful though!

    Well after writing a review about being short changed in the amount of seed I received I am happy to say another packet popped through my letterbox today, I retract my previous review!

    Months of growing to discover they’re not blue, nor are they particularly scented. I can hardly send them back for a refund, complete waste of time and money.

    Germinated well if slowly, but it still only took a week or so without a propagator.

    I soaked 10 seeds. Placed in good compost in propagator. Only 2 grew. Not impressed.

    They all germinated well but they are lilac! The name and picture needs changing – very misleading.
