Lathyrus odoratus Sweet Pea ‘Jilly’


Lathyrus odoratus – Sweet Pea ‘Jilly’

A spencer-type Sweet Pea and my top choice for a creamy ivory sweet pea with long stems and large frilly flowers.

Height: 1.8m to 2.5m

Spacing: 20cm

Sown to Grown: 20 weeks

Approx seeds per packet: 20 seeds

Growing tips: can be sown in the autumn or late winter, I prefer the latter and sow at the end of January, approx 12 weeks before the last frosts. Pinch out the tips to 3-4 pairs of leaves to encourage bushy growth. Grow them on cool in an unheated greenhouse or cold frame. Plant out in April.

Harvesting/Arranging tips: for vase life pick when there are two unopened flowers at the tip. 

Vase life:4-5 days, flower food helps to extend it.

Cost: £2.50
