Botanical Interests "Old Spice Blend" Sweet Pea Seeds


Annual. Blooms in spring. 5' - 6' tall. Full sun. 'Old Spice Blend' is a mixture of old heirloom Sweet Peas. They are very fragrant, large 2 flowers that bloom into the heat of summer, and come in a wide range of colors including white, cream, pink, rose, scarlet, lavender, purple, bi-colors, and even striped flowers! An excellent choice for areas without long cool springs or for gardeners who are planting a little late. Basic sowing instructions are still the same as for other sweet peas in cold winter climates - plant as soon as you can work the soil in spring. In warm winter climates, sow from October to January for spring bloom. Generally blooms for 3-5 weeks. 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. 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.
