Flowers

Sweet Pea 'Colorcade'

A blended colour mixture of the finest sweet peas. Early flowering and heavily perfumed, Colorcade produces masses of lightly frilled flowers on long stems.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Directly where they are to grow. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix, firm down and keep moist but avoid over-wetting. Select seeds of all sizes as seeds of darker coloured flowers are often small and shrivelled.

Care

Choose a sunny, well-drained and sheltered position for preference running in a north-south direction. Add Thrive Granular All Purpose Fertiliser and lime for quality blooms. Support small seedlings with twigs until they can reach trellis. Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser applied when buds appear will improve blooms. Pick blooms regularly to promote further flower growth. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
