Fragrant Sweet Peas

Strawberry Fields

(Lathyrus odoratus)
EXCLUSIVE - Bred by Dr. Keith Hammett, early blooming Strawberry Fields offers long stems of luscious blossoms that remind us of the colors in a bowl of freshly harvested sliced strawberries in delicious hues of coral-red with just a touch of cream in the buds. These exuberant, fresh faced blossoms contrast beautifully with their green calyxes and leaves to make a sweetly scented medley of form and color. They'll provide armfuls of perfumed bouquets to pick to your heart's content.

EASIEST TO START OUTDOORS

Sweet peas must have well-drained soil, so dig deeply and enrich with aged manure or compost before sowing seeds. Erect a well-anchored trellis, vertical netting or other support for vines before planting. Sow seeds in full sun in cool early spring weather as early as the ground can be worked.

In mild winters, where ground does not freeze, sweet peas can be planted in fall. Seedlings will form strong root systems, then overwinter to bloom vigorously in spring. Plant sweet pea seeds 1 inch deep and 2 to 3 inches apart. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, thin to 4-5 inches apart to allow plants room to mature.


GROWING NOTES

Sweet peas bloom best when they flower before the weather gets too hot, so if spring planting, sow as early as possible, especially in regions where summer heat comes on fast. Anchor climbing supports well as these vines will grow dense and heavy with bloom. Protect seedlings from birds, slugs and snails. Mulch and keep well watered for best flower production. For longest bloom, remove faded blossoms regularly.
