The lovely fragrance of the sweet pea is one of the things that makes it so popular, along with the fact that the pretty flowers are long-lasting as cut flowers. Sweet peas dislike acid soils. Pinch back growth to encourage branching as the plants develop. Pick the flowers regularly. Watch for mildew on the leaves. Most sweet peas are tall-growing climbers that need to be given the support of a sun-drenched wall, fence or trellis, but there are some smaller varieties that are suited to pots.
Sweet Peas are originally from Italy, but New Zealand's Sweet Pea breeders are now leading in the worldwide breeding of Sweet Peas.
