Sweet Pea

Sweet Peas

(Lathyrus odoratus) We offer a wonderful collection of old heirlooms and many are very fragrant. Plant in early spring, or whenever the weather is cool and moderate. Annual except as noted. Soak seeds 24 hours before planting. Sow in place in early spring into rich, moist soil. Plants thrive in the moderate conditions of spring, and tolerate some low temperatures. In most climates hot summer weather will put a stop to the blooming season. (Warning: The seeds, pods and plants are poisonous!)
