Sweetpea - Matucana


Sweetpea - Matucana 
Lathyrus odoratus 
35 seeds

An old-fashioned garden classic with lashings of 1920s splendour. With a strong sensuous scent that develops like a fine wine, these heritage sweetpeas will make you deliriously happy. The masses of jazzy two-toned crimson, violet flowers are enough to make angels sing.

Slightly nick the seeds with a knife and soak overnight to rehydrate them. They love a rich, moist soil. Encourage side shoots by pinching out the tips above a set of leaves for robust plants with lots of shoots and therefore flowers. Snip regularly for the vase and deadhead regularly for a long-lasting flowering period. Do not eat these seeds.
