Whether it’s enjoying a posy of home grown sweet peas, sweet peas cascading from a hanging basket or a fence or tripod covered in sweet peas in spectacular full bloom, sweet peas are a beautiful flower to have in your garden. It’s sweet pea sowing time, so now is your chance to dream ahead and decide where you would like to have this gorgeous flower on show.
Tall growing sweet pea varieties that are ideal for creating walls of colour include delicately patterned Yates Sweet Pea Patricia Ann, beautifully fragrant Yates Sweet Pea Colourcade and vibrant Yates Sweet Pea Original. Compact varieties that are perfect for pots and hanging baskets include Yates Sweet Pea Bijou.
Here are some easy steps to create a very pretty sweet pea display:
Sweet peas take around 12-14 weeks to flower. Cut handfuls of deliciously scented flowers for a vase so you can bring their gorgeousness inside.
Flower care: protect new sweet pea seedlings from destructive snails and slugs with a light sprinkling of Yates Blitzem™ Snail & Slug Pellets.
When it comes to garden design, colour is one thing that can help it come together. While texture, placement and plant choice is important, having an element to tie them altogether can really help your garden shine.
