Picking Sweet Peas

The colorful and fragrant sweet pea flowers are blooming so beautifully this season.

The sweet pea, Lathyrus odoratus, is a garden classic - producing beautiful blossoms with the most amazing scent. Sweet pea seeds can be sown into small pots of compost in autumn and overwintered indoors, or planted directly into the ground come spring. We planted ours along a trellis in my vegetable garden in March. And just last week, we picked bunches of gorgeous flowers and made several arrangements to decorate my home.
