When to Sow Eclipse Sweet Pea Seeds

September to April

Where to Sow

 When sowing Sweet peas in September or april, sow direct into flowering site at 2cm (1") deep. Later sowings in pots, five seeds in each. October and November sowings in a cold frame. January sowings in an unheated glasshouse. March sowings in a cold frame.

What to do Next

Sweet pea seedlings that have been raised in a glasshouse should be hardened off during March. Plant out pot grown seedlings direct in the flowering site at 15cm (6") apart in April. Thin direct sown seedlings to 10cm (4") apart. Pick flowers regularly to encourage new growth.
