8 Ways to Get Late-Summer Color in Your Garden
This bevy of beautiful blooms will fill your garden with color through the fall season.
Plant sweet peas in fall or early spring, and your nose won't be disappointed.
In mild-winter climates, sow sweet peas directly in the ground, 1 inch deep and 2 inches apart, between September and November. In cold-winter areas, plant in February or March in 2-inch plastic pots, then transplant seedlings into the ground in March or April.
Look for varieties designated "early-flowering" such as 'Winter Elegance Mix'. To speed germination, soak seeds overnight before planting.
