Sweet Pea Mrs. Bernard Jones
Sweet Pea 'Mrs. Bernard Jones'
A reliable performer and a great cut, ‘Mrs. Bernard Jones’ has large sweetly scented, candy-pink blooms on tall, strong stems. Every cutting garden deserves a row of fragrant, nostalgic sweet peas. A fistful of these 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.
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.
