Our Feedback
I have just tried growing your Victorian colossal pea, with fantastic results. We have a small garden and my wife found these thinking we would get more for the same space as the 'normal' peas. Problem is they are so heavily laden with pods they are tearing from the support frame and I have had to tie them up with soft string. A problem that is very welcome. I have just sown more in the greenhouse to plant out for a later crop. I have also tried your coloured carrots but too soon to try, but I will be ordering more seeds and greater variety in the future. Best wishes

The plant with so many common names - Paddy's Wig, Corsican Creeper, Friendship Plant, Bread and Cheese, Baby's Tears, Paddy's Tears, The Pollyanna Vine - the list is endless.

A Victorian favourite that has all but been lost from cultivation, it always graced the edges of Victorian conservatory benches in a foil of neat bright green leaves to drape the edges.

It can also be planted in cracks in crazy paving outside as well as cleverly sculptured over a chicken mesh 'framing' packed with suitable growing media. Extremely versatile.

  • Grows to approximately 4" (10 cm) tall.
  • Has an indefinite spread.
  • Prefers shade to full sun.
  • Plant 12" (30 cm) apart.
  • Frost tender - so in severe winters can be 'knocked back' drastically, but invariably recovers the following year.
