Lets talk Sweet Pea (Lathyrus) today, my favourite garden flower to grow.
I have been growing Sweet Peas for a few years now and I must admit, quite successfully. I stick to a procedure each year and it seems to work as I have sweet peas skyrocketing my garden.
I start to grow them mid March in my boot room using these fantastic seeding trays, but you can use any other sort of trays/pots as long as you keep them under a dome. I water them every other day and take the dome off as soon as the plants start leafing. Mostly it takes about a week that I keep the plants dome less before I put them outside in the cold ground. By this time it’s mid April, please wait (even when they are big enough) with planting them outside if there’s still frost. You will kill them!
In my next Sweet Pea update I’ll show you how to plant them outside to get an amazing bush like the one below.
They are so pretty, smell amazing and look so lovely in little vases all over the house. I can’t wait for summer!!
