GREEN UP YOUR GAFF

SWEET SWEET PEAS

1st March 2018

Words by Jessica Peace

Want to grow something easy, sprawling and sweet smelling? Get your hands on some SWEET, sweet peas.

RATING

Easy Sweet Peasy

THE DEETS

The sweet pea wears a rock hard jacket so let them hang out on some moist tissue to loosen them up. Once they swell or sprout they are good to go! Find a spot, or a pot with lots of sun and no fear of soggy bottoms.

Space your seeds so they are hiding beneath about 1cm of soil with 3cm between each pea.

Sit back and watch them go. They look sweeet sprawling over pots, crawling up canes and cut off and hanging out in your gaff.
