Sweet Pea - Patio Mixed
This is the perfect variety for edging a border, or planting in baskets, window boxes or patio containers. Dwarf, bushy plants produce up to four waved blooms per short stem in a superb range of colours, and each sweetly scented.
Sow seeds 1cm deep in the compost. If sowing in autumn or winter, sow 3 seeds per 7.5cm pot and place in a cold frame where seeds will germinate and grow throughout the winter until spring. If sowing in spring, sow as above and place the pots in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature around 20-25C until the seeds germinate. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, plant them out into their final flowering position, 30cm apart.
