A re-selected heirloom variety producing masses of long stems of large, frilled flowers. The combination of shades within each flower is breath-taking. Height 1.8m. Scent 2.

Spring is the time that most people think of sowing their sweet peas (Lathyrus odoratus) without realising that traditionally, they used to be sown in the autumn for early summer flowering the following year. They will flower from late May onwards. The benefit of autumn sowing, apart from earlier flowering, is in the fact that larger, more robust plants are produced, resulting in better flowering performance. They are quite hardy, and will grow through the winter with a minimum of protection. Try Suttons 'tried and tested' selection - you won't be disappointed!

Sowing Information

For early flowering sow in a greenhouse or indoors at approximately 13-15°C (55-60°F), 3 seeds per 10cm (4") pot, 13mm (1?2") deep. Germination 10-20 days. Acclimatise to outside conditions and plant out in May. Alternatively, sow direct into finely raked, moist, warm, weed free soil where the plants are to flower, 13mm (1?2") deep. Remove growing tips after 3-4 pairs of leaves have developed to promote more flowers. May also be sown September-October in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse to over-winter.

Live Plants

Suttons strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.

Non Standard Deliveries

Unfortunately like many companies in our industry we are currently only able to supply orders to UK based customers, excluding those in Northern Ireland. We are committed to finding a way that we can resume or normal services again as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvience caused.

Very Large items

If ordering any large items marked large lorry items  a surcharge of £5 per item will be applied. These items are also not available to areas and postcodes shown under non standard deliveries. We may need to contact you regarding delivery so please provide a contact number with all orders.

Prices include VAT where applicable.

We reserve the right to contact you and advise an additional charge where necessary and are happy to quote for carriage of specific products to more remote areas. Some items may not be available to all areas.

We reserve the right to revise any carriage charges in the event of carrier price increase or other unforeseen circumstances. We will always advise of the carriage charge before payment is taken.
