Heathcliff Sweet Peas

Dark, brooding, mysterious and, yes, just a little bit dramatic, Heathcliff is a sweet pea you'll be tempted to grow in your borders for a number of reasons but if you prefer something gentler take a look at our full range here. That deep royal purple-blue is a colour that works in every style of garden, while the long, strong stems make Heathcliff ideal for cutting and bringing indoors. The scent is powerful, almost overwhelming. Plus it has an Award of Garden Merit from the RHS, so unlike its namesake, perhaps, it's unlikely to disappoint. But we understand that not everyone will fall for Heathcliff's handsome charms.

How to grow Heathcliff Sweet Peas

In the garden, you are best following a few simple rules with sweet peas. Give them sun, so south or west facing, plant in really good, rich soil, train the new growth into supports such as canes or an arbour, and don't let them dry out. Once your sweet peas are flowering, give them a high-potash feed every week or two and they'll flower their socks off from June until September, or even beyond - as long as you remove any seeds that form and keep on cutting the flowers to bring indoors for vases. They really are brilliant value, in terms of sheer joy, ease and the weeks of colour and scent they bring.

Grow them alongside other sweet peas in contrasting colours - try a white one such as White Frills, or pretty pink and white Heaven Scent for a dreamy combination. A wigwam of sweet peas in the middle of a vegetable bed will help your runner beans get pollinated.
