There’s a reason that vintage flowers are so desirable! Blanche Ferry Sweet Pea is a delicate blend of rose and blush tones, with an enchanting fragrance. This is the first American variety, introduced in 1899 and named after the renowned D.M. Ferry’s daughter.
Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.
Planting and Growing Tips:
These uniquely-shaped flowers thrive in rich, well-drained soil but will tolerate most growing conditions. Soak seeds overnight prior to planting to improve germination and sow — 1/2 inch deep — as soon as the soil can be worked in early spring. Plants like full sun and cool weather. Water regularly during warm, dry conditions to keep them blooming.
Vining varieties need support to climb – provide them some sort of terrace or garden netting. Once the vines start to bloom, cut the flowers for arrangements and enjoy. The more you cut, the more they’ll grow.
