SWEET PEA SEEDS
One of America's favorite annuals, sweet peas give you bright, fragrant flowers magnificent for cutting. All sweet peas prefer cool weather, although Old Spice and Mammoth Mix show remarkable resistance to heat.
Climbing sweet peas are supported by trellises, nets, or strings. Have to say, we enjoy sweet peas most when vines are rambling over shrubs; creates an authentic cottage garden look.
Dwarf sweet peas do not climb, are perfect for containers, beds and borders. Flowers are frequently held on stems long enough cutting.
