Plantaholic Post: A Sweet pea for Show and Tell

I have been badgering Tony for the name of this sweet pea all summer and now, October in, he tells me.  It is called April in Paris.  It is exquisite white with feint purple tracings.  It has flowered and flowered and not done the usual pea thing of shrinking in flower size and stem length as the season wears it out.  The stems are long and it is highly scented.

One to sow and show and tell.  An offering to close my blog for several weeks as  I follow a pyrenean trail in big boots.

    Your sweet pea sounds gorgeous and so pretty too.
    Have a good break, will look forward to hearing about your trip (sounds exciting) when you return safely!

  2. I love this coloring of the flower.

    II love sweet peas. When do you sow them Catherine? I like to start early, making deeps pots from newspaper. I usually try some in the coldframe and some on a cool window sill.

    Would love to know your advice.
