Now is the time to give Sweet Peas a grow. The cerise pink petals are an absolute stand out and the fragrance is oh so sweet.
Who could resist the ambrosial abundance of Sweet Peas? It is impossible to get enough of these romantic, old fashioned favourites.
We are continually searching for the best plant varieties out there and in our quest we have uncovered the most impressive Sweet Peas yet. ‘Sweet Seduction Sweet Peas’ were bred for the cut flower market; they are vigorous with long, strong stems and flower freely, exuding a delightful cloud of perfume. We are totally impressed with their vigour and lovely long stems.
Sweet Peas are quite clever as they can bloom in two different seasons. Basically, if you plant them in spring, they will bloom in autumn and vice versa. There is around a 12 week wait from planting to bloom.
Sweet Peas need a support to grow on; you can use tee pees, bamboo poles, plastic or jute netting, an old gate, wire mesh etc. the options are endless.
Plant your ‘Sweet Seduction’ Sweet Peas in humus rich, moist well drained soil. They will produce plenty of flowers if they have a nutrient rich base. It is a good idea to add regular doses of fertiliser, slow release or liquid to encourage strong growth and lots of flowers. Plant in a sunny position and ensure good drainage and air flow.
Once your Sweet Peas are up and growing you need to cut the flowers regularly – the more you pick the more you will have. This is fantastic as you are able to fill your home with the gorgeous, perfumed blooms.
Make sure you keep your Sweet Peas well watered, if they dry out they are likely to go to seed sooner. If the flowers are allowed to develop into seed heads the plants will stop blooming.
With the right care you will get up to three months blooms from each planting.
