Lathyrus sativus White
Lathyrus sativus White - White Vetchling
Colour - white
Variety - annual
Scent – nil
Sow – spring
Height - approx 2m
History: Originates in western and central Asia.
Grow: Spring. Sow directly after danger of frost has passed. It is remommond to soak most annual species for 24 hours. However, I haven't had an issue with sowing without soaking. Seeds are sown to a depth of 2cm into moist well-drained soil with a spacing of approximately 8cm. Germination takes 7-21 days.
Note: These flowers are much smaller than the Lathyrus odoratus flowers.and should be deadheaded regularly to prolong the flowering season.
