Botanical Interests "Little Sweetheart" Sweet Pea Seeds


Enlarge Image

Annual Blooms in spring. 8 - 12" mounds. Full sun. A compact dwarf Sweet Pea, 'Little Sweetheart' has masses of small red, pink, white, rose, lilac, and blue flowers. Unlike traditional vining Sweet Peas, they make a nice mound that is perfect for hanging baskets, patio containers, borders, and even window boxes! Though the flowers are a little smaller than other sweet pea varieties, the prolific blooming makes them charming little gems to brighten up any area. 'Little Sweetheart' generally blooms for 3-5 weeks and does not need a trellis or strings for support. For all Sweet Peas, the bloom period depends on the weather. As temperatures warm up in summer, flower production starts to slow down. Removing all spent stalks and blooms immediately after they are done blooming will prolong the bloom period. Before planting, prepare your sight well. Choose a sunny, cool spot away from winds and heat-absorbing materials like brick and stone. A 1' - 2' deep bed that has been amended with compost or peat is ideal with the pH ranging from alkaline to neutral. Sweet Peas have a long history. Please note that Sweet Peas are inedible and poisonous.

When to plant outside: In cold climates, sow in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. This means St. Patrick's Day or earlier. In warm climates, sow October through January for early spring bloom.

When to start inside: Sow 4-6 weeks before planting outside (see above).

Special Germination Instructions: Seed requires scarification, a process that helps to break the hard seed coat. Soak in water for 24 hours before planting or roll on sandpaper to slightly nick the outer surface.
