Thompson & Morgan Sweet Pea Sugar N Spice
The Hanging Basket Sweet Pea! Just imagine the familiar fragrance of Sweet Peas growing in a basket near an open window, or hung outside the front door. New specially bred Sugar n Spice™ is a compact variety guaranteed to spice up your baskets and containers and its fragrance is every bit as sweet as its taller cousins. Sugar n Spice™ comes in a spectacular colour range, including bicolours, with blooms produced all along the short stems and from each leaf node, forming a ball of rich colour. The plants are naturally neat and compact so there is no need for pinching.
Sow October indoors, or March to april outdoors, at 20-25C (68-77F) on the surface of a free draining, damp seed compost, 3 seeds per 7.5cm (3 inch) pot. Cover with a layer of compost 1cm (½ inch) deep. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 10-21 days. Spring sowings can be sown outdoors, 2.5cm (1 inches) deep in drills 7.5cm (3 inches) apart.
When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions before planting out in spring when the ground has warmed, 23cm (9 inches) apart.
For best results, provide a rich, moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Water plants freely in dry weather and and remove spent flowers regularly to prolong flowering period, an application of manure may also be beneficial during growth.
