May be started inside 3-4 weeks earlier, but is usually direct seeded in early spring as soon as the ground can be worked. Soak seed in water for 24-48 hours before planting in fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seed 1-2 inches deep. Sweet peas prefer cool conditions. If your summers are hot, you should keep the roots cool by trenching them. Dig a trench, about 10 inches deep and place your seeds in the bottom. Cover with 1 inch of soil to start and continue to fill in the trench as your peas grow. Space 6 inches apart in a full sun location.
Sweet peas are heavy feeders, so fertilize regularly. Provide support for vining types. Change their location each year, to avoid disease problems. You may use Garden Innoculant to give them a boost. Deadhead or pick blossoms often for bouquets.
