Sweet Pea Mrs Bernard Jones

Lathyrus odoratus

Sweet Pea Mrs Bernard Jones

The best pink Sweet pea I have found. Shell pink on white, with deeper pink markings, its a show quality cultivar and a supreme cut flower. Sweet Pea Mrs Bernard Jones has larger than average flowers on long strong stems, easy to mix with other flowers.

I hope that starting with a few Sweet Pea’s from our tried and tested selection will give you the best possible experience and mark the start a life long obsession.

How to Grow:
Here in the UK I sow from Autumn onwards, undercover or in a sheltered spot. Spencer varieties will also happily grow from a Winter/Early Spring sowing. Sweet peas are hardy so can be planted outside in March or April (or 2-3 months before your last frost date). Provide a strong trellis or support for Sweet peas to climb.

*Unlike garden peas, sweetpea seeds are poisonous if ingested. Unfortunately mice still like to steal them so are best pre-sprouted

Cutting /Vase Life:
For the longest vase life, pick when the first flower opens leaving two to open in the vase. Sweetpeas have a relatively short vase life making them the perfect choice when growing your own.

Place flowers straight into ready buckets of water. We rest our stems for a few hours in water, this is called conditioning.
