In the past two days we have sowed an unbelievable amount of Sweet Peas and more are on their way from England. Nearly every color of the rainbow will be represented in the patch this year including a variety called Orange Dragon that very closely resembles its name.
After trailing dozens of varieties I have finally settled on growing the collections offered by English Sweet Breeder Owl Acres. The past two seasons their Winter Sunshine Series beat our older groups like Winter Elegance and the Mammoths by nearly double. The results were absolutely amazing!
In addition to being highly productive and very healthy, the Winter Sunshine Series boasts incredible stem length too.
Of all the places in the world, I’d argue that smack dab in the center of the Sweet Pea patch might be one of the most incredible places to be.
So filled with life, vitality and fragrance, the air feels as if it is humming!
When I get too frazzled by all of the to do’s that fill early summer, a quick trip into the Sweet Pea patch and I’m instantly grounded.
