Sweet Pea - Blue Velvet
This variety, introduced in 1972, grows very deep blue, well ruffled flowers on long stems, and so are ideal for cutting.
Sow in September in flowering site around 2cm deep. Sow later in pots or deep modules, such as root-trainers, 2 seeds to a module or 5 seeds to a pot. Place in cold frame to over winter. Sweet peas like moist, fertile soil with good drainage in a sunny spot. Repeated dead-heading prolongs the flowering period.
Warning: Seeds are poisonous!
