Elegant Swan Lake is a classic Spencer type sweet pea, with softly ruffled pure white blooms and long stems. Perfect as a cut flower, and subtly scented to bring sweet pea fragrance to any room. Ideal for growing up a trellis, netting, bamboo canes or a teepee, and makes a beautiful screen for your back lawn.
Choose a sunny, well-drained sheltered position. Work in Yates® Thrive® Natural Garden Lime and Yates® Thrive® Natural Blood & Bone before planting. Sow into damp soil beside trellis or support (up to 2m) direct where they are to grow. Cover with Yates® Black Magic® Seed Raising Mix and firm down. Do not water for a couple of days after sowing.
Support small seedlings with twigs until they can reach trellis. Begin applying Yates® Thrive® Flower & Fruit Soluble Fertiliser regularly when buds appear to improve blooming. Protect from snails and slugs.
For best results have trellis running in a North-South direction. Pick blooms regularly to promote further flowering. At the end of the season improve soil by digging in these nitrogen-rich plants.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct Sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
