The Sweet Pea is beautiful perennial that has a wonderfully pleasant scent.
Choose a well-drained site. Alkaline soil is best; sprinkle some powdered lime on the surface if your soil tends to be acidic.
Sweet peas are happiest with their heads in the sun and their roots deep in cool, moist soil. When possible, plant low-growing annuals in front of them to shade their roots.
Early sowing is one of the secrets with sweet peas. In Zone 7 or colder, plant them in very late winter to early spring as soon as the soil is dry enough to work.
In the coldest parts of the country, get a jump on the season by starting sweet peas indoors in six-packs or Jiffy pots. Harden seedlings off for at least a week, and then set them out into the garden when the soil can be worked.
If you garden in Zones 8, 9, or 10, plant sweet peas in the late fall so they can develop and bloom in late winter and early spring. Sown in August, they'll bloom in December.
Before planting, soak the seeds in water for 24 hours. Then nick the seeds with a nail file before planting to speed sprouting.
To plant, turn the soil over to a depth of 2 feet. Dig a trench about 4 inches deep, make holes with a pencil, drop in the seeds, and press down on the soil to firm it and shut out any light.
Once planted, germination can take 7 to 15 days, depending on the soil temperature.
As seedlings emerge and grow, gradually fill in the trench. Hoe more soil up to them.
Sweet peas prefer cool days and nights and will start to fade when temperatures go above 65 degrees F.
sweet peas are real climbers. Give them at least 6 feet of good support. Some varieties may climb to 9 or 1 feet. If you don't have a fence or trellis, provide brush or chicken wire.
When plants become established, mulch well to keep the soil cool and moist.
To encourage bushy growth, pinch off the tops when plants are 6 inches tall.
