With their captivating fragrance, sweet peas have been a favorite flower for gardens since the 17th century. They are native to the Mediterranean region and have been cultivated and hybridized to produce varieties with enhanced scent and colors. Suitable for growing in USDA hardiness zones 2 to 11, they adore cooler weather. They will bloom profusely from spring to early summer, sometimes longer.


Start sweet pea seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost. You can sow them directly in the garden as well, in early spring or fall. Nick the seed coat to encourage germination. Alternatively, you can soak them overnight before planting. Sow them 1 inch deep, spacing as indicated on your packet for your chosen variety. These vining plants can benefit from support like a trellis or stakes to climb. Germination usually starts in 10 to 21 days, depending on soil temperature.


Sweet peas require regular watering, especially during dry periods. Provide them with a trellis or some sort of netting as the vines need support to climb. The extra airflow also encourages healthy growth and prolific blooming. Removing dry flowers will prolong the blooming period of sweet peas.
