Year after year I grow hundreds of sweet peas plants in my flower farm, both undercover in a polytunnel and outdoors, producing thousands of stems for sale to florists, for use in my own weddings, gift bouquets and always a hit on my Pick Your Own events too, who does not love the scent of sweet peas and the delight they bring when cut and brought indoors to enjoy.
This will be a 2 hour real time virtual workshop via zoom starting with me
demonstrating how I sow sweet pea seeds for my flower farm. We will discuss best types of peat free compost to use, materials and equipment you will need.
I’ll discuss with you the types of sweet peas to grow which are best for scent and all important stem length, how to ensure best germination, preparation for growing them and planting out, maintenance and care regime which is easy to follow and you can remember for years afterwards. Towards the end of the session there will be plenty of time to have Q&A time so have your sweet pea questions ready!

Pastels Mix a delightful mix of pale lilac, pinks, cream, white and blue
