Gran and Grandpa loved their sweet peas. THey grew over a large wall of the egg packing shed. Fed by chook manure they were always plentiful and the scent still takes me right back to those days. - My Cottage Garden
Sweet Peas are a cottage garden classic producing beautiful blooms with the most gorgeous scent. You can train them onto a plant support to create a really impressive column of fragrant, summer colour, and they make excellent cut flowers.
Sweet peas in the sweetest pastels. The sweet pea (Lathyrus odoratus) is a flowering plant in the genus Lathyrus in the family Fabaceae (legumes), native to Sicily, southern Italy, and the Aegean Islands.
