Wafting a super scent, the lavender coloured blooms of Leamington, with their wavy petals, are a total delight in the garden or when cut for a vase. Price for 15 seeds
Flowering June to September. Height to 180cm. Annual.
To get the most from your sweet peas they will need extra watering and feeding with a high potash plant food (tomato fertilizer is ideal) to keep flowering throughout the season. It is very important to keep deadheading any wilting blooms - if seed pods are allowed to develop the plant will slow down and then stop producing flowers..
For the longest flower stems try growing them up individual supports and trim off any side shoots… this will limit the flowers, but the plant responds with longer flower stems and larger blooms. Hmmm, my thoughts are that I would rather have as many blooms as possible and live with the stems being a little shorter!
