Every winter garden should have these wonderful scented, free flowering varieties. Plant in well dug – over composted soil. Germination of sweet pea seed is often quicker and more uniform if the seeds are soaked in water for 24 hours prior to sowing. A temperature of 18 to 20°C will give rapid, even germination.
