5 FOR £10
Sweet peas are a wonderful addition to any garden, especially if you have a seating area where you can enjoy their fragrant blooms. Planting sweet peas near a seating area allows you to enjoy their delightful scent as you relax and take in the beauty of your surroundings. Alternatively, you can also cut some sweet pea blooms and bring them indoors to fill your home with their lovely fragrance. Even a small amount of sweet peas can create a big impact when it comes to scenting a room.
When planting sweet peas, it's important to keep them well-watered, especially during hot weather. Most varieties of sweet peas have tendrils that will self-cling to supports, but some may require tying in. It's also important to start feeding sweet peas with a high potash fertiliser, such as tomato food, when the flower buds appear. This will help ensure that the plants continue to produce healthy and abundant blooms throughout the season. By following these simple tips, you can enjoy a beautiful and fragrant display of sweet peas in your garden, or even in your home.
