As Britain's biggest Sweet Pea seed (lathyrus odoratus) producer for the home gardener, we have a huge range of sweet pea varieties to choose from. E W King, the founder of Kings Seeds was such as big fan of these flowers that he wanted to grow them on his farm. After over 135 years, sweet peas are still a major part of our business with over 100 individual colours in our catalogue.
Sow sweet pea seeds in your garden for beautiful, colourful blooms that have a sweet scent! We have many varieties including spencer types, traditional climbers, grandifloras, dwarf varieties, old fashioned sweet peas, mixed seeds and our sweet pea seed collections. Some of which are 'Exclusive to Kings', such as our new Seabrook's Fantasia Sweet Pea.
Our dwarf sweet pea seeds are perfect garden plants for tubs, hanging baskets or beds and they have a wonderful fragrance. Grow sweet pea seeds from September to April, either in pots or direct into the growing site depending on the time of year you are sowing. You can view our growing guide here on How to Sow Sweet Pea Seeds. Sweet pea planting can begin from September to April.
They're fairly easy to grow and make a great cut flowers that can be displayed in a vase around your home. Spencer varieties can grow up to 6ft tall, making spectacular displays at the back of borders climbing up a trellis or over garden arches or teepees, giving them some support as they grow.
