When I was making bouquets last year, I wanted to include scent. The heritage ones I grew had that in spades, if you’ll pardon the pun my dears, but their stems were much too short. This year, after much research, I have opted for the Spencer variety. Yes, named after a gardener who lived on the Spencer estate, notable recently for being the home of Lady Diana. I have ordered them from the lovely named Owl’s acre which I saw recommended on the Green and Gorgeous blog.
The choice of sweet peas was extensive and with speedy delivery and useful instructions included, I can recommend a look. As I am just taking the first steps in exploring flower farming, I limited myself to 4 varieties:
– White frills and limelight for their neutral colour palette.
– Dark passion (a dark blue) and Windsor (a gorgeous maroon) to add a pop of colour.
It will be chilli powder at dawn with the clever mice this year.
Wish me luck with the quite extensive and clever mice I have living out and about. It will be seeds coated in chilli powder at dawn with them this year.
A note – I want to say dear readers that these are my views for which I have received no benefit.
