€3.50 “Price excl. VAT: €3.08”
This free flowering sweet pea will scramble and clothe fences, and scramble through shrubs flowering year after year.
Plant Class: Hardy Perennial (HP).
Sow indoors for surest results, March-June, 1.5cm (½”) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse or on a cool windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm (3″) pots. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May onwards, 45cm (18″) apart, when frosts are over. Support plants. Or, sow thinly, outdoors, April-June, in a seed bed, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Protect young plants from birds. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2″) apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Flowers: June to September.
