Sweet Peas thrive in fertile, organically rich, well-drained soil. Start 2-3 seeds per hole as soon as the soil can be worked (about 4-6 weeks before the last frost date in cooler climates). When the seedlings are 3-4 inches tall, thin to 1 plant every 12 inches. Keep soil moist, watering at the base of the plant to avoid wetting foliage. Knee High Sweet Peas do not need support. The bushy plants will produce long, straight stems with 5-6 inch florets filled with colorful, long-lasting flowers.

In warmer climates sow sweet pea seeds in the fall for beautiful winter and spring blooms.

For maximum growth plant seeds at the bottom of a 6" trench with soil until the ground is level beneath the growing plants. 

Wit & Wisdom: Gather the flowers in the morning when the dew is still on them. This is when their scent is the sweetest. Read The Old Farmer's Almanac Sweet Pea Growing Guide!

Help Your Plants Thrive with Weed Control: Weeds compete with vegetables, flowers and other plants for water, space and nutrients. Give your plants their best life by keeping weeds under control with Organic Weed Barrier Paper, mulch or careful weeding.

Are Your Seeds Non-GMO? What Does Non-GMO Mean?
Non-GMO means seeds (or other products) that were produced without genetic engineering and were not derived from GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms). All of our seeds are non-GMO.

Where do Your Seeds Come From?
Most of the seeds offered on our site are USA Origin seeds sourced from certified US based suppliers. We do also source a small number of seeds from other countries. To view the specific origin of any of our current seed offerings, check the seed packet or look in the specifications for "Country of Origin" on any product page.

Are Your Seeds Packed for the Current Growing Season?
All of our seed packets are packed for the current growing season. If stored properly they will provide high germination rates for 1-2 additional years as well.

How Can I Store My Seeds Safely for Use in the Future?
Our seeds will generally retain their high germination rates for several years from the date of purchase. If you're planning on saving your seeds for us in the future, the most important thing to remember that seeds like to be stored where it is cool, dry and dark. The easiest way to ensure this for long term storage at home is to double-seal your seeds inside two zipper style bags and then place them in the freezer. (Make sure you label your seeds for future reference if they're not in original packaging.) When you're ready to plant your seeds, take just the ones you want to use out of the freezer and let them sit on a counter, in a covered container, for a few days to thaw and stabilize before being planted. To preserve germination rates, minimize temperature, light and humidity fluctuations by storing your seeds at the back of the freezer and only taking them out when you're ready to use them.

The Package with my Seeds in was Left Outside in Freezing and/or Rainy Weather. Will the Seeds Still Work?
As long as your seeds have not gotten wet they should work fine. Freezing temperatures will not hurt the seeds.

Are Your Seeds Treated?
No. The USDA Certified Organic Program prohibits the use of treated seeds. All of our seeds -- whether certified organic or not -- are untreated.
