Rich dollops of cream
Rich cream-coloured petals form gloriously scented flowers that appear throughout the summer on these much-loved, cottage garden plants. Plant them at the base of a sunny south-facing wall and provide something for them to scramble up, or pot several into a large container topped with an obelisk to create an elegant feature for the patio. In our (not very scientific) sweet pea trial on the nursery, we found that this variety still had lots of lightly scented, creamy white flowers in August, and these were carried on 8 - 10" stems. All the sweet-peas in our trial produced significantly better plants when the seeds were sown in autumn rather than spring.
