Sweet Pea - Chelsea Centenary

This is a multiflora type producing 7-8 pale lavender scented blooms on each stem. Named by us in conjunction with the RHS to help celebrate the 100th year of the Chelsea Flower Show in 2013. The hardy annual reaches the height of 180cm.

Sow indoors for surest results, January-March or September-October, 1.5cm deep, 5 seeds per 12cm pot of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, greenhouse or cool windowsill. A temperature of 15°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 12-21 days. Pinch out the growing tip, when two pairs of leaves have formed, to encourage bushy growth. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, avoiding frosts, before planting out into well-drained soil, March-May, 30cm apart. Support with tall canes or netting. Or, sow outdoors for ease, April-May, where they are to flower, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Sow 2 seeds together, every 30cm. Remove weaker seedlings, which can then be transplanted. Seeds sown in autumn generally flower earlier the following year. Flowers: May to October. Pick blooms regularly to prolong the flowering season.
