SWEET PEA SEEDS
One of America's favorite annuals, sweet peas offer bright, fragrant flowers that are magnificent for cutting. All sweet peas prefer cool weather - although the varieties Old Spice and Mammoth Mix show remarkable heat resistance.
Climbing varieties need support such as a trellis, netting or strings. We enjoy them most when rambling over shrubs, for that authentic cottage garden look.
Dwarf sweet peas do not climb and are perfect for containers, beds and borders, and frequently have stems long enough cutting.
