Sweet Pea Seeds 'Bouquet Mixed' by Mr Fothergill's
Large, bright blooms on sturdy stems, great for shows. A vigorous grower and one of the best for cut flowers.
Sow indoors for surest results, January-March or September-October, 1.5cm (½") deep,
5 seeds per 12cm (5") pot of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame,
greenhouse or on a cool windowsill. A temperature of 15°C (60°F) is ideal. Keep moist.
Seedlings usually appear in 12-21 days. Pinch out the growing tip, when two pairs of leaves have formed,
to encourage bushy growth. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts),
before planting out into well-drained soil, March-May, 30cm (12") apart. Support with tall canes or netting.
Or, sow outdoors for ease, April-May, where they are to flower, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared,
well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Sow 2 seeds together, every 30cm (12").
Remove weaker seedling, which can then be transplanted.
Seeds sown in autumn generally flower earlier the following year.
Flowers: May to October. Pick blooms regularly to prolong the flowering season.
