Grow Fragrant Sweet Peas

Grow Sweet peas in the veggie garden to attract pollinators to increase your harvestGrowing sweet peas is easier than you think. You could just poke a seed in the ground and wait and you would actually get pretty good results too. But this is certainly not the way to get the best results. A well prepared soil with compost, organic pellets and a dusting of agricultural lime give them the best start. They have a long season of bloom and make excellent cut flowers. Sweet peas lend a romantic cottage feel to gardens. They are often grown on bamboo tripods, but they will gladly grow through shrubby plants.
