She has been growing these stunning sweet peas since 1993 and shared them with us!

Recommended Planting Requirements: Loose well-drained soil is the best for peas. Organic matter can be added for a healthier harvest. Peas are best grown up a trellis or some support system for neatness. Sweet Peas should be sown in the fall for early spring blooms. Sweet pea seeds are slow to germinate and can be soaked beforehand to help speed up the process.

Growing Recommendation: Peas need cool weather for the best growth. Start seeds in late fall in areas with a mild winter for spring blooms. For prolonged blooms, secession planting is recommended.

Harvesting & Storage: Flowers can be cut and used in arrangements. Please be aware the sweet peas are not edible and can be poisonous to some animals.

    These flowers are beautiful to grow and put out a ton of flowers. Make sure to trellis them bc they grow like crazy, once it begins to warm up. Also I recommend not eating these, because your stomach will hurt as I found out, thinking they were edible., THEY ARE NOT! Id highly recommend these flower, they are the exact color as shown in the picture. I received these seeds at a work shop that San Diego Seed Company put on and im really glad I planted them.

    Here in the Bay Area, these are growing vigorously and blooming profusely! The blooms are a gorgeous deep purple color, making it a perfect compliment to the yellow roses growing alongside them. The classic sweet pea scent is strong. I have to harvest them every few days because they’re producing so much, and I’ve got huge, abundant, fragrant bouquets making my dining room cheerful.
