Sydney Botanical Trial Garden

Updated: Sep 13, 2022

This year the Sydney Botanical Gardens are trialing sweet peas to see which varieties are best suited to their area.

We supplied the following below as they require 10 hours of sunlight instead of 12 hours to activate flowering. Grown outdoors in the normal way, they will flower 2-3 weeks earlier than the other varieties.

It is important that Sweet Peas grown in warmer areas have finished flowering by the time humidity sets in. Sweet Peas will develop powdery mildew if grown in humid conditions.

These are also the best varieties for cut flowers as they have stems around 30cm in length.

The horticulturists were very impressed with our seeds especially when they got 100% germination.
