Product Description

Sweet Pea 'Porlock'
Lathyrus odoratus

A very unique variety bred by Dr. Keith Hammett. Outer wings are the color of eggplant and the throat is a rich grape. Stems are not extremely long, so it’s best to use whole vines in arrangements. Every cutting garden deserves a row of fragrant, nostalgic sweet peas. A fistful of demure little blooms are how Floret was born and they continue to spellbind us each season.

*Unlike garden peas, sweet pea seeds are poisonous if ingested. Use caution around children and pets.*

How to Grow:
In mild areas seeds can be sown in pots in the fall, wintered over in a sheltered spot and planted out in spring. Everywhere else, sow seeds 10-12 weeks before the last frost and plant out right around the last frost. Provide a strong trellis or support for vines to climb.

Harvesting/Vase Life:
For the longest vase life, pick when there are at least two unopened flowers at the tip. Vase life will be shorter when picked more open. Sweet peas are a short-lived cut flower, lasting at best 4-5 days in a vase. Adding a source of sugar or flower food to the water will extend vase life a few additional days.
