If you only have room for one sweet pea in your life let it be âMatucanaâ.
An old-fashioned sweet pea with possibly the best scent of them all. Itâs purple and maroon flowers are slightly smaller than modern hybrids, but size isn't everything, especially when you smell as sweet as this pea.
Like all sweet peas Matucana is happiest in the ground but will make a decent container plant if planted in good compost and kept fed and watered through the summer.
Sow Autumn - October to December
Spring - January to April
Our seeds come in a hand-folded envelope with a beautiful hand drawn image of our Sweet Pea Mantucana on the front, and full sowing instructions printed on the reverse. Part of our 'Saedian Hand Blended Seeds Collection', they make a thoughtful gift and if you can't see your mum for Mother's Day or her birthday this year, why not send her a selection of our seed packs in the post so that she can grow her very own bunch of flowers!)
