Received the email yesterday saying the plants had been despatched, arrived late morning today. All good, strong, healthy plants that were very well packaged and I'm sure they will romp away once planted. Customer service was excellent as well and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to my fellow gardeners.

These are the forerunner of all modern Sweet Peas, dating back to the times of Admiral Nelson.

We supply a beautiful mixture of these preserved heritage varieties. This mix includes such varieties as Edward VII, Matucana, Prima Donna and Eckford varieties. These are smaller flowers than Spencers and come in a reduced colour range. Their great attribute is the extremely strong perfume that attracts summer butterflies.

Recognised to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Sow in 3½" (9 cm) pots October-April, 2 seeds per pot and grow cold.
  • Protect seeds from mice and birds.
  • You can direct-sow in the ground from late April until late May.
  • Choose an open sunny position.
  • Sweet peas like a deep root run with plenty of humus incorporated as bud drop occurs if the soil dries out.
  • Plant 6-9" (15-23 cm) apart.
  • Flowers June-September.
  • Grows to approximately 8 feet (2.4 metres) tall with suitable support.
  • Pick flowers frequently (and before they set seed) to prolong flowering.
  • Earlier blooms can be produced by growing under protection.
  • Under no circumstances should the seed or seed pods (which look similar to edible garden peas) be eaten as they are poisonous.
