Sowing and/or growing instructions
Nick the seed coating and plant in spring under glass an inch deep (sweet peas need darkness to aid germination) in pots of compost, either singly, or several in a 3in pot, to be pricked out later. Keep moist. Pinch out growing tips when 3 or 4 true leaves have formed. Plant out in a sunny position in rich, moist, soil or compost, providing support in the form of wigwams or netting. Much could be said on the subject of sweet pea growing, but I will mention only the bare bones here - that sweet peas need humus-rich soil, moisture, sunshine and feeding, and regular picking or dead-heading to encourage repeat flowering. Much more information can be found elsewhere online for those who wish to research the subject more thoroughly.
