Sweet Pea ‘Old Fashioned Mix’

Sweet Pea ‘Old Fashioned Mix’ is continuing to throw out flowers, short of stalk and with an absence of fragrance, at this, the tail end of the year.

Sown on 17th April, under glass, by October the frosts will usually have browned the foliage, killing this annual. With the wet miserable summer did we notice a change as summer became autumn and now with the shortest day behind us it appears the Sweet Pea also is unaware of the change in season.

Best wishes for Christmas.
