When to sow
When to Sow Kings Sweet Pea Exhibitors Collection
September to April
Where to Sow
Sweet pea seeds have a wide sowing time, but where you sow them depends on the time of year.
September and April sowings = In flowering site 2cm (3.4") deep.
Later sowings = In pots. Sow 5 seeds in each.
October, November and March sowings = In a cold frame.
January sowings = In a heated glasshouse.
Any glasshouse raised seedlings should be hardened off during March. Plant out pot grown seedlings in the flowering site 15cm (6") apart in April. Thin direct sown seedlings to 10cm (4") apart. Pick the flowers regularly to encourage new growth.
What to do Next
Late June to September
Provide sturdy support for sweet pea plants. After a good rain, a mature plant will be heavy.
