Details: Plant type: annual Height: 6-8 feet Site: full sun Days to maturity: 75-90 days Plant spacing: 6-8" Pinch: when 6” tall Approx seeds per packet: 10
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.
