More details about Patio Mix

This fabulous container sweet pea only grows to 30cm (12") tall. Its lightly fragrant flowers have wavy petals in shades of red, pink, light blue, deep blue, and white. Try Patio Mix sweet pea seeds in containers or hanging baskets, in window boxes or raised beds. It is a great edging plant, and looks great planted between rows of vegetables. All sweet peas fix nitrogen in the soil, so compact varieties like this one make useful companion plants for nitrogen-hungry leafy vegetables. Even though the plants are short, the stems still make nice cut flowers.

Timing

Timing
Sow indoors 6-8 weeks before the last average frost date for your area. Or direct sow outdoors in early spring, while the soil is still cool and light frost is still possible. Plants are strongest from an early, indoor sowing. Sweet peas can also be direct sown in the fall where winters are mild.

Starting

Starting
Sow seeds 1cm (½”) deep. If starting indoors, chip seeds or soak them in warm water for 24 hours. Use a seed inoculant for the best results. Maintain a soil temperature of 12-18°C (55-65°F). Seeds should germinate in 10-20 days.

Growing

Growing
For best results, prepare the sweet pea bed the previous fall. Cultivate the soil to 45cm (18″) deep, incorporating a generous amount of finished compost. Also dig in bone meal. At transplant time, dig ¼ cup balanced organic fertilizer into the soil beneath each plant. Space vines at 15cm (6″) and provide trellis support. Mulch around plants to keep the soil as cool as possible, and water during dry weather. Keep plants picked to prolong the blooming period.
