Favorite sweet pea ever

Everyone is obsessed with these: hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and myself lol. I always grow sweet peas and they'll usually have a light scent. But these smell so good it's almost unbelievable, I've never seen sweet peas this fragrant before. Definitely buying/growing these again and again! They look gorgeous on a trellis too

Didn't germinate

I was disappointed in these. I seeded three trays of sweet peas from three companies for the mix I plant on a trellis. If I could post a photo I took, you'd see that only one single Territorial Seed Company seed germinated. The other two companies' seeds did fine.
I won't buy these again.

So sorry to hear this variety didn't germ for you! At Territorial our products are backed by our full guarantee. We want you, our customers, to be 100% satisfied with the seed, plants and supplies that you purchase from us. If anything you buy from Territorial proves to be unsatisfactory, we will either replace the item or refund the purchase price, whichever you prefer.

Sweet peas are an easy flower to grow. Their peak bloom time is early summer and typically finish by mid-July, unless otherwise noted. Sweet peas prefer deeply dug soil with lots of rich compost. Best grown in full sun on a fence or trellis. Sow in early spring, the same time you would plant garden peas. To hasten germination the seed can be rubbed with sandpaper and soaked for one hour in warm (110°F) water to help soften the hard seed coat. Sow the seed 1–2 inches deep, 3–6 inches apart. Germination occurs in 10–15 days. When the seedlings are about 10 inches tall, pinch out the growing point to allow for more branching. Vines average 4–5 feet long. To prolong flowering, mulch heavily to keep the soil cool, fertilize lightly during the blooming season, and remove old blossoms.

The color and beauty of a flower garden can lift the spirit and renew the soul, and a bouquet of fresh cut flowers will bring sunshine into your home. Over the years we have conducted extensive flower trials, concentrating on varieties that are easy to grow-many from direct-sowing- have superior color and fragrance, and make a good cut flower. Take a bit of time, relax and enjoy a cup of steaming hot chocolate, and look over our selections. We think you'll find just what you're looking for.

Germination Codes
Given at the end of each description to give you specific information.
(1) Germination occurs between 70-85°F and within 6-15 days. Sow indoors and cover lightly.
(2) Needs a period of pre-chilling. Mix seeds with moistened peat moss and place in plastic bag. Seal and place bag in an area where the temperature is around 60°F for 2-3 days. Then place in the refrigerator for 30-90 days. After pre-chilling, place seed on sterile seedling mix and cover lightly. Germination may take up to 30 days.
(3) Needs darkness to germinate. Remove cover as soon as germination occurs.
(4) Direct sow in the garden as soon as the soil warms to at least 55°F.
(5) Germination may be slow and erratic. A fluctuating temperature of 75°F during the day and 50°F at night may help.
(6) Needs at least 12 hours of light per day to germinate. Press into the medium but do not cover. Keep moist.
Note: For those varieties that indicate a (1) or (6), a very light covering of vermiculite will allow adequate light to the seed and keep it uniformly moist.

• As a general rule, flowers can be sown when soil has warmed to at least 55°F
• Apply 1-2 cups of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 5 row feet, and 1 inch of compost
• If you prefer to soak your seeds: soak in 85°F water for 1-3 hours and plant immediately — longer soaking times are often detrimental; seeds need air to live

Direct Sowing
• Seeds should be buried 2 times their narrowest dimension and covered with finely raked soil or vermiculite unless otherwise noted
• Some varieties can take over a month to germinate so mark your rows, keep them moist, and for larger seeds like sunflowers, use bird netting

• Sow 5-6 weeks prior to anticipated transplant date
• If seeds need darkness, cover with 2 sheets of newspaper or plastic, remove upon the first signs of germination
• We recommend feeding your seedlings Age Old Grow, diluted to 1/4 strength

Insects & Disease
• Early watering and good weed control will generally alleviate most problems
• Pyrethrin will control most insects

Harvest & Storage
• For fresh-cut flowers: Harvest in the morning when flowers are their freshest and petals are just opening
• Cut with a clean knife that has been dipped in a solution of 10% household bleach
• A few drops of bleach in the vase will prolong their beauty
