Old Spice

Sweet Pea Seed


These beautiful climbers smell even better than they look. A great collection of old varieties that are heat resistance and highly scented flowers. The flowers are derived from the old Eckford series and are somewhat smaller than modern strains. A good variety where summer heat will not usually allow sweet peas to grow well.


Germination: Sweet Peas will take 14-21 days at 60°F to germinate. Presoak seed for 24 hours in room temperature water prior to planting to aid germination.

Direct Sowing: Sow 4-6 weeks before the last frost, 2-3 seeds 6″ apart, 1/4″ deep. Darkness is required for germination. Thin to 6″ apart when true leaves appear. Sow in a location with full sun and soil that is deep, rich and drains well.

Transplant: Sow 4-6 weeks before planting out. Sow 2 seeds directly into each cell or 3-4″ pot, 1/4″ deep. Keep soil surface moist until emergence. Thin to one plant when the true leaves appear. Transplant outside as soon as the soil can be worked. Seedlings won’t be damaged by a late frost.

Plant Spacing: 4-8″

Hardiness Zones: Sweet Peas are annuals and should be planted each year.

Cut Flowers: Harvest when half the flowers on a stem are open. Should last 4-6 days inside.
