Heaven Scent Sweet Pea Plants

Heaven Scent is an utterly reliable and charming Spencer sweet pea with an unbeatably rich fragrance. It has extra large flowers and long straight stems, perfect for cutting, if you can bear to deprive your garden of these flowers early (solution: grow more of them!). The pale salmon blushes appear to waft over the ruffled outer edges and middle of the petals, which are a lovely intense cream colour in the recesses. Stunning to look at and a strong grower, it should be a definite in any cutting garden or potager.

Growing Heaven Scent Sweet Peas

Try growing it with the beautiful blue Spencer, Just Julia. When training Heaven Scent up a pergola, structure or stairway, bear in mind that it tends to produce most of its flowers nearer the top of the plant, unlike the more old-fashioned sweet pea varieties with smaller flowers. This feature works well if Heaven Scent is emerging from a border or is planted behind a rose like Penelope, thus hiding its less showy lower stems.

If you grow a sweet pea or two with your runner beans, it helps with pollination; Heaven Scent is a perfect match for runner beans with cream or white flowers.

Did You Know? 

The first sweet pea seeds arrived in Britain around 1700, when a Franciscan monk from Sicily, Franciscus Cupani (1657-1710), sent samples to botanists around Europe, including Dr Robert Uvedale (1642–1722), a cleric and the former master of Enfield Grammar School in Middlesex.
This variety was released onto the market in 2007, bred by Sydney Harrod at Cooltonagh in Ireland.
