Planting & Care
Sweet peas are quite hardy, growing from large, easy-to-handle pea-like seeds. Still, they re a bit tricky because they are slow to germinate. It s worth experimenting with different seeds each year.

Sunlight: Full Sun

Soil: Loamy

Water: Keep soil moist throughout the growing season.

Temprature: Above 65 degrees F.

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer.

Care:

  • Sweet peas are happiest with their heads in the sun and their roots deep in cool, moist soil.
  • When possible, plant low-growing annuals in front of them to shade their roots.
  • Choose a well-drained site.
  • Alkaline soil is best, sprinkle some powdered lime on the surface if your soil tends to be acidic.
  • Prepare a rich soil by mixing in generous amounts of compost and well-rotted manure mixed to a depth of 2 feet.
  • Prior to planting, you re going to want to dig a nice deep trench of about 4 inches in depth.
  • After you dig the trench, make holes with a pencil, drop in the seeds, and press down on the soil to firm it and shut out any light.
  • Before planting, soak the seeds in water for 24 hours, then nick the seeds with a nail file before planting to speed sprouting.
  • You do not need to soak seeds in a temperate climate.

 


Harvesting: Harvest the stems when the lowest blossom is just begining to open.

Care:

 

 

  • Once planted, germination can take 7 to 15 days, depending on the soil temperature.
  • As seedlings emerge and grow, gradually fill in the trench.
  • Keep soil moist.
  • Summer rain may be ample.
  • If you put your finger into the soil bed to its first joint and the soil is dry: water them at the soil level and do in the morning, sweet peas can suffer from bud drop.
  • If you use plenty of aged manure and compost when planting, you do not need to fertilize.
  • If you do want to add nourishment, use high potash feeds, as nitrogen feeds encourage too much top growth.
  • Sweet peas prefer cool days and nights and will start to fade when temperatures go above 65 degrees F.
  • Except for the bush types, sweet peas are real climbers.
  • Give them at least 6 feet of good support.
  • Some varieties may climb to 9 or 1 feet, if you don t have a fence or trellis, provide brush or chicken wire or bushy stubbly twigs that they can cling to.
  • When plants become established, mulch well to keep the soil cool and moist, if you mulch, you may not need to water your sweet peas unless the soil gets dry.
  • To encourage bushy growth, pinch off the tops when plants are 6 inches tall, not before or you ll encourage premature side-shoot development.
  • Pick the flowers for bouquets often and the plant will put energy into more blooms instead of going to seed.

 


Special Feature:
Sweet peas are easy to grow. Get them in the ground early to take advantage of cool spring weather.
