  • SUN SWEET PEA OFFER (OUR HARRY & ROYAL WEDDING)

    "Sun Sweet Pea Offer" - 1 packet each of "Our Harry and Royal Wedding" plus Postage for £5.


    Make the neighbours green with envy and have Our Harry and Royal Wedding in your garden.
    You will have to be quick, because the Wedding is likely to be late May and if you sow right away they should be in bloom in sheltered gardens and cold greenhouses at that time.

    Sweet Pea ‘Our Harry’ is a gently waved, delicious lavender blue with paler edges and good scent. The flowers are large, carried on long stems and excellent for all purposes including the show bench.

    Sweet Pea ‘Royal Wedding’ has greenish cream buds which open to pure white with nicely waved petals that have a hint of cream at the edges. Highly scented, this vigorous grower is perfect for cutting and holds the Scottish National Sweet Pea Society Certificate of Merit.

    Both will be perfect to go in the bride’s bouquet, backed by a traditional Royal sprig of “Myrtle”.
