Sweet Peas

(Lathyrus odoratus) Sweet peas come in a collection of old heirlooms and many are very fragrant. Plant in early spring, or whenever the weather is cool and moderate. Sweet pea is an annual except as noted. Soak seeds in warm water for 24 hours before planting. Direct sow 3-4 weeks before last frost (preferred) or start indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting out. Plant seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inches deep. Ideal germination temperature is 55-65 F. Seeds germinate in 14-21 days. 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!)
