Flowers

Sweet Pea 'Old Fashioned'

A truly lovely blend! Large, ruffled blooms that are heavily perfumed. The vigorous, heavy flowering variety continues later in the season than most.

Position

Full Sun.

Sow

Directly where they are to grow. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix, firm down and keep moist but avoid over wetting. Select seeds of all sizes as seeds of darker coloured flowers are often small and shrivelled.

Care

Choose a sunny well drained and sheltered position, for preference running in a north-south direction. Add Yates Thrive Granular All Purpose Plant Food and lime for quality blooms. Support small seedlings with twigs until they can reach trellis. Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser applied when buds appear will improve blooms. Pick regularly to promote further flower growth. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
