Sweet pea growing tips
Sweet Pea seed germinates in a couple of weeks in a cold greenhouse or cold-frame but this can be shortened by several days using some gentle bottom heat. Pinch out the growing tips of autumn sown plants when they have 3 pairs of true leaves and are about 4 inches high.
For spring sown plants pinch just above the first pair of leaves. This will encourage branching and develop strong, stocky plants. Harden plants off gradually before planting out in their final position.
One last word, pick your Sweet Peas to your heart’s content. The more you pick, the more they’ll grow.
All Sweet Peas shown are Hardy Annuals, all prefer a sunny site and most are suitable for cutting.
