Sweet Pea Liquorice is an intriguing, glamorous sweet pea, it may be small-flowered like its ancestors, but makes a striking statement. The moody deep purple blooms are a sure talking point when displayed indoors, and have a delightful scent. An annual with petite blooms, it flowers late in the season.
Choose a sunny, well-drained, sheltered position. Sow into damp soil beside trellis or support (up to 2m high) direct where they are to grow. Cover with Yates Black Magic Seed Raising Mix and firm down. Do not water for a couple of days after sowing.
Support small seedlings with twigs until they can reach trellis. In cooler areas of middle climatic zone, seeds can be sown through early Spring. For best results, have trellis running in a north-south direction. Pick blooms regularly to promote further flowering. At the end of the season, improve soil by digging in these nitrogen-rich plants.
Plant height 1.5 - 2m | Germination 10 - 14 days | Flowering 14 - 16 weeks
