Scented Beauty - Its not too late to sow sweetpeas

As the days grow longer and the promise of spring hangs in the air, there's no better time to sow the seeds of beauty in your garden. While I prefer to sow sweetpeas in Autumn its still not too late to sow them now


With their delicate blooms and enchanting fragrance, sweet peas are a beloved addition to any garden, and with a few simple steps, you can still enjoy a bountiful display of these charming flowers in the coming months. Check out our guide to growing sweetpeas

Sweet peas (Lathyrus odoratus) are more than just a pretty face in the garden—they're a true delight for the senses. Their colorful, ruffled blooms come in a range of shades, from soft pastels to vibrant jewel tones, and their sweet, lingering fragrance fills the air with an intoxicating perfume. Whether grown along fences and trellises, in containers on patios, or as cut flowers for bouquets, sweet peas an an absolute must for any garden.


Plants will grow quickly and its essential to keep them protected a little if you are planting out early. I plant my autumn sowings in March and my spring sowings in April/ May.

I protect them by covering them with cut down lemonade bottle to act as a mini greenhouse. I cut off the top and bottom and place over the plants at the base of my support structure. They offer just enough protection to keep them going until the weather warms.
