Sweet Pea seeds

Sweet peas are very well known for their fragrant flowers.  Buy your favorite sweet pea seeds, or purchase a combination of blends and mix the seeds for a scented and more colorful garden.  They are available in a wide range of colors, sizes, shapes and levels of fragrance.  Sweet peas can be annual or perennial flowers.  Plant both kinds and you'll have a variety of bloom colors from April through September.

The seed coat of sweet peas is so hard, it takes a while to soak up enough moisture for germination. You can speed germination if you nick the seed coats with a file or soak seeds overnight in tepid water. You can start them inside, but keep the temperatures fairly low (55-65F) since they prefer cool conditions. If you sow them outside, do so shortly before your last spring frost. They need full sun to grow well and flower abundantly.  Sweet peas can be a bit touchy but when they reach 4-6 inches tall, you can carefully pinch them back to encourage them to branch out. They usually will start clinging to support when they get a little taller, but you can encourage that by gently wrapping their tendrils around.

Annual sweet peas last for such a short while that planting them close together will allow for a very full look, space them about six inches apart along the trellis. The annual Sweet Pea blooms in many colors and are sometimes multicolored. The normal bloom time is spring - early summer, before the weather gets too hot.

The perennial sweet pea, however, is a much rangier plant so it is suggested to plant them 12 to 18 inches apart. If you are using transplants rather than seeds, you might want to space them a bit closer together. Sweet peas do not always transplant well so you may have some losses.  The perennial type is a strong growing vine (up to 9 feet) with blue-green foliage. The flowers are can be reddish purple, white or rose and are produced from June - September if not allowed to go to seed. (If you deadhead frequently you'll prolong the bloom.)
