Sweet Pea Knee High Mix Seeds
Grown in full sun, sweet peas (Lathyrus odoratus) are annuals known for their climbing nature and fragrant blossoms.
"Knee High" varieties, however, are dwarf in nature, excellent for gardeners who enjoy sweet pea flowers but don't want the hassle of a trellis system. In climates where the ground does not freeze during winter, plant sweet peas in October or November. They'll grow and bloom during the winter months and with care and will last until mid-summer. In cooler climates, plant sweet pea about four to six weeks before the last frost. They'll grow and bloom throughout the spring and summer months.
Planting depth 1/2". Soak seeds for several hours or overnight in warm water before planting. Most of the seeds will soften and swell, but if a few remain hard make a slight nick in the seed coat. In climates with mild winters, these prepared seeds can be sown in the fall to bring the earliest spring blooms.
