Hardy Annuals are generally easy to grow, quick to flower and are great for filling in gaps. However large or small your garden they represent great value for money. Sweet Peas or Lathyrus odoratus originated in Sicily and are said to have been introduced to Britain during the 17th Century. It was the Victorians who started to breed a more diverse colour range, and this trend has continued ever since, with new shades coming onto the market most years. Scents range from very delicate to quite pungent and we recommend for arrangements that you use a mixture of colours with a few of the more strongly scented ones added in for effect. Dainty flowers are produced in abundance and most varieties will need support. Black seeded varieties should be soaked in water overnight before sowing. Sow at 15-20ºC (59-68ºF) Cover with thick layer of vermiculite or compost. Can be sown outdoors in situ and thin as required.

An old favourite, probably the most popular flower in the UK. Everyone should find room for sweet peas. Growing to 180cm (72") plus, support is required. A dwarf growing non tendril type which is especially good for bedding schemes. Colours include white, pink, red and blue.
