Sweet Pea Red Ace

Description

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.
