Sweet Peas

Eagle Sweet Peas

Gardening always strikes me as a pursuit that stands with one foot in the moment and another firmly in the future. Whilst The Chelsea Flower Show was way back in May, even then my Mum and I had next summer in mind when we bought a bumper pack of seeds from Gold Medal winners, Eagle Sweet Peas.

We gleaned loads of advice from the chaps on the stand too: no soaking or chitting required, no watering after planting until you see the first signs of germination, and a very strict rule of one plant per pole (I’m definitely guilty of ignoring that one in the past).

The time has finally arrived for sweet pea sowing and, although I’m revelling in all that autumn has to offer, I have high hopes this little lot next year.
