Sweet Peas perform best when sown directly in the garden. In mild climates, where ground does not freeze, sow in fall. In cold winter areas, sow about one month before last frost date. Nick the seed coat and soak in warm water 24 hours before planting to encourage germination. Plants prefer rich, well-amended, well-draining soil and full sun, and will appreciate afternoon shade in the heat of the day.

Keep flowers cut regularly and remove seed pods to encourage more blossoms.
