Started Sweet Peas Indoors January 14

Sweet-pea-5

Burpee’s Galaxy Mix Sweet Pea

I sowed a flat of Burpee’s Galaxy Mix Sweet Pea seeds today.  I have never started these indoors before.  This is an experiment.  I didn’t do anything special.  After planting and watering the seeds, I loosely covered them with saran wrap.

They are supposed to germinate in 14 days.

“excellent for growing on fences and for cutting

  • Grows best in full sun
  • Up to 84 days to maturity
  • Seeds may be started indoors at 55 degrees Fahrenheit about 6 weeks before outdoor planting time for earlier bloom
  • Plant 1/2 ft. or more apart
  • 15 ft. mature height
  • Mulching is recommended to keep the soil cool and to conserve moisture
  • Flowers are a beautiful mix of colors that include blue, lavender, rose, salmon, scarlet and red”
