Product Details
Sweet Pea 'Blue Velvet' Seeds

Blue Velvet Sweet Pea flowers are actually rich purple in colour. Like all Spencer type Sweet Peas Blue Velvet has gorgeous scent, makes a striking display in the garden and is lovely for cut flowers too. They combine well with Sweet Peas in lighter shades of blue and I particularly love them with orange climbers such as Ipomoea and Nasturtiums.

Sweet Peas are brilliant plants for beginners. They are very easy to grow and super productive giving you masses of flowers for picking.

Grow 2 seedlings to a 1L pot. HOW TO GROW SWEET PEAS
Plant Out Prepare a trellis with canes spaced 20cm apart (8 inches) then plant one pot with two seedlings next to each cane. Tie the stems in as they grow.
Conditions Required Sweet Peas have long roots and need fertile, moist but well drained soil. Like most annual flowers Sweet Peas prefer a sunny spot. They will also grow in dappled shade.
Water thoroughly in dry spells and feed to keep the flowers going.
Flower Production Buckets of scented rich purple flowers from June to September.
Picking Pick Sweet Peas when the first flower is open and the top two are still in bud. It's best to pick early in the morning or in the cool evening and stand them in deep water for a few hours before arranging. Lasts 5 days in a vase.
Planting Combinations Sweet Peas are some of the best annual climbing flowers that you can grow. You will be amazed at how many flowers are produced. Blue Velvet makes a striking display alone and grows well with other Sweet Peas in complimentary colours.
