Sweet Pea â€“ Old Spice â€“ Dorothy Eckford
This old heritage variety grows white flowers, and dates back to around 1900.
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!
