Sweet Peas

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.
