Alternatively the seeds can be planted in a coldframe or greenhouse to overwinter in frames to produce early blooms.
Sweet pea seeds should germinate within 10-21 days, the seedlings then need to be acclimatised to outside condition before planting out between April and May where the plants should be planted at least 15-20cm apart.
