I love Sweet Peas! I think I must post about them every year when they are in bloom. Why? Because they are awesome, fragrant and the wait is so long for them here in SoCal! Plant the seeds in Oct and you will have blooms in Spring. Or for me this year with all the rain we've had, my first blooms were in February! You read it correctly! FEBRUARY! Crazy, right? I used to plant them in our backyard along my permanent fence for climbing things in one of my three raised beds. Last Fall, I found some rebar and we curved them and made a tunnel between two of the raised beds. I planted Sweet Peas on both sides of the beds to go up the rebar. And I planted them on their usual fence spot too. One can't have too many Sweet Peas(unless they're coming up all over your yard in the wrong places like someone I know)
So far only 3 varieties have bloomed. I'm pretty sure I planted more than that. But I'll have to wait and see. And I did not keep those empty seed packets. I'm guessing that like many other plants, they are early mid and late blooming varieties.
It's odd that the ones planted on the fence have bloomed taller than the fence. But the ones planted along the rebar where they have more height to grow up are shorter. What's up with that?
Here I am in between the rebar with the Sweet Peas.
Are you growing them? I'd love to read your comments.
