So excited! I’ve been reading Arjen Huese’s lovely book on growing and selling cut fowers, and didn’t realise you can sow sweet peas so early! So last Friday I rummaged around my old seed stock, and have sowed a few of last year’s Old Spice mix, and some of my own saved seed. You can tell which is which jusy by looking at the seed: my saved seed was stoed in a thin brown paper bag, and is already showing signs of starting to want to sprout, unlike the Old Spice – probably because the moisture levels were higher in the thin paper bag compared to the proper sed packet.
Anyway, it’s a mini trial to see which comes up first, how many germinate, and eventually which are best. I’m also looking forward to ordering some more varieties and colours today; can’t wait to try out some white fragrant ones!
