Early Spring Bloomers
Sweet peas burst with buckets of colorful blooms in the cool of early spring.
With some of the boldest colors this side of a Pucci print and the most spectacular fragrances found outside a perfume bottle, sweet peas are an ephemeral spring pleasure not to be missed. And like most annuals, they're easy to grow -- even just one packet of seeds leads to loads of blossoms.
To enjoy sweet peas to the fullest, find the right variety for your climate, follow a few simple steps for planting and growing, and be sure to stock up on vases for displaying cuttings!
