Sweet Pea (Lathyrus Odoratus Beaujolais) 25 seeds (#1985)

One of the earliest varieties originating from seed sent to England in 1699 by Father Cupani
Large, deep wine coloured, lightly scented blooms that contrast beautifully against the foliage. Ideal for cutting. Grow over fences, trellis or netting.
This favorite flower is famous for its quick blooms and sweet fragrance. The flowers are a delight both in the garden and brought inside for fabulously-fragrant bouquets.
Cool weather annual that is best grown in rich, humus, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates some light shade. Compost may be incorporated into the growing area prior to planting.
Best performance occurs in cool soils (soil mulch helps) in cool summer climates with good air circulation.
Sweet pea can be a challenge to grow well in hot and humid summers where, as temperatures rise, plants will decline rapidly to the point where removal from the garden becomes necessary.
Provide even moisture and regular fertilizer throughout the growing season. Avoid overhead watering to the extent possible. In warm winter areas, seed may be sown in fall or late fall for winter and spring bloom. Avoid planting sweet peas in the same location in consecutive years. Plants may be grown in bushy mounds or as climbers.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Choose a site in full sun with rich, well-drained soil.
2. Soak sweet pea seeds in warm water for 2 to 6 hours before planting.
3. Plant seeds in early spring, as soon as the soil has thawed thoroughly. Soil temperatures and moisture levels vary widely at this time of year - if you don't see any seedlings after a week or so, replant. The best sowing time - from January inside to June outside.
4. Once seeds have germinated, thin plants so that they stand 15-20 cm apart.
5. Provide support for your sweet peas to climb (unless they're the dwarf, bushy types that need no support) - they can grow up to 1,80 m tall. Good support candidates include netting, trellises, arbors, fences and string supports.
6. Keep soil evenly moist. Mulching is a good idea.
7. Trim or pinch faded flowers to promote longer blooming.
8. Fertilize every two to four weeks, or work in a slow-release fertilizer at planting time. Sweet peas are heavy feeders.
9. Tear out and discard plants after heat arrives and they begin to look ratty. (Info source: eHow.com).
