Sweet Pea Seeds Villa Roma Scarlet Suttons

£2.99

The ‘Villa Roma’ is a wonderful new dwarf bush sweet pea variety with sweet scented blooms. This variety produces an abundance of scarlet red flowers that look excellent when in a garden container. Growing to an overall height of 35cm, the branches will create a rounded plant with great impact. Profusely flowering from July until September after spring sowing and unlike many other sweet pea varieties, they have a marvellous scent.
The striking, single coloured sweet pea can be sown as early as January for plug production and for direct sowing in the garden from April to May. Requiring no staking the flowers will produce a bounty of flowers profusely from July until September.
Winner of the Fleuroselect Gold Medal, the judges were impressed with the bright colour, excellent performance in the garden and its ability to continue blooming even through the summer heat.
Sweet peas germinate quicker if the seeds are soaked in water for 24 hours prior to sowing. This will enable you to find the seeds with the hard coats, which will fail to swell. If you nip the seedcoat with a small file, this will enable them to take up water. A temperature of 18-20C will give rapid and even germination. As soon as the seedlings have emerged, they will need to be grown in cooler conditions with as much light as possible.
Sow in autumn to winter into long thin pots.
If sowing indoors place two well spaced seeds 2.5cm below the compost surface. When the roots have filled the pots, pot on into two litre pots. Pinch out any tips when the plants have 3-4 pairs of leaves. Over winter uncover in a light and cool place. Plant out two plants vertically in a mild spell in March. Tie them in every week to encourage straighter stems. They can also be sown in March to April and planted out from April to May.
If sowing outdoors, directly sow them in the ground where they are to flower. The best time to do this is from mid March to early April after the first frost. Sow 2-3 inches apart and 1-2 inches deep. When the plants are large enough to handle plant to an average of 6-8 inches apart.
Height: 20cm
Spread: 25cm
Flowering: June-August
