Every time I see sweet pea I always think of Spring, these little florals are so beautiful and smell amazing! They bloom throughout Spring and Summer and but stay evergreen throughout Fall and Winter and come in a shrub or vine variety. Since Sweet Peas is this month's "Flower of the Month" we wanted to showcase how you can grow these lovely flowers in your garden. 


1) Plant them in very late winter or early spring as soon as the soil is dry enough to work.

2) Sweet peas are happiest with their heads in the sun and their roots deep in cool, moist soil. When possible, plant low-growing annuals in front of them to shade their roots.

3) Prior to planting, you’re going to want to dig a nice deep trench of about 4 inches in depth.

4) KEEP SOIL MOIST, if you touch the soil and stick your finger in up to the first joint and it's dry make sure to give it ample water. 

5) Except for the bush types, sweet peas are real climbers. Give them at least 6 feet of good support. Some varieties may climb to 9 or 10 feet.

6) When plants become established, mulch well to keep the soil cool and moist. If you mulch, you may not need to water your sweet peas unless the soil gets dry.

we hope this post helps you with your plant care needs
till next time!
