Start your flower garden season with the balmy fragrance of sweet peas!
Although sweet peas are considered an old-fashion favorite, their delicate fragrance and attractive habit appeal to gardeners of ALL ages! Royal Mix is an established variety with a loyal following because it grows well outdoors and offers a sturdy vining habit. Like all sweet peas, it can be sown directly outdoors in early spring, well ahead of most flowering annuals. Plant along fences to give the vines a foundation for climbing. Trellis and garden obelisks are also a popular means of displaying their beauty and fragrance. Sweet peas also make a wonderful cut flower, so grow enough to enjoy both outdoor and in!
