Sweet Pea


Harvesting sweet peas

The sweet-scented flowers come in many colours ranging from pure white to deepest darkest purple.
Though sweet pea blossoms look lovely in the garden, I love to have them cut and put into a vase, as a lovely bunch of sweet peas can fill a room with their delicate fragrance. Furthermore, to keep the plant flowering as long as possible, you must keep picking the flowers because they quickly go to seed as the weather warms up.

Word of warning - although sweet peas are related to edible garden peas, the peas of Lathyrus odoratus is toxic and should never be eaten.
