Sweet Pea Red Ace
Well Scented Spencer Type
Red Ace is a Spencer type sweet pea producing large, bright red flowers, with a good scent. This variety is a good choice for exhibition use.
We recommend sowing sweet pea seeds into a good quality seed sowing compost and water with tap water rather than water from a water butt. Butt water can contain harmful pathogens, resulting in poor germination.
