Lathyrus Odoratus 'Leamington' (Spencer Sweet Pea Seed Leamington)

Add fragrance to your garden

Sweetly scented, lavender blooms that make super cut flowers, appear throughout the summer on this gorgeous sweet pea. A favourite for the cottage garden, they will also thrive in pots, where they will quickly scramble up an obelisk or tepee of bamboo canes. Bees and other beneficial insects will flock to them in the garden and their heady perfume will keep them coming back for more. In our (not very scientific) sweet pea trial on the nursery, we found that this variety had a strongly scented flowers (but not as good as King's High Scent), with around 3 flowers on each 10-12" stem. It was also still flowering well in August. All the sweet-peas in our trial produced significantly better plants when the seeds were sown in autumn rather than spring.
