Sweet Pea Zinfandel

EXCLUSIVE - Zinfandel’s ruffled blossoms are a rich shade of claret/ burgundy that will remind you of fine vintage wine. This beautiful variety begins to bloom very early in the season to cloak a fence or arbor and provides striking bouquets of beautiful flowers with unrivaled depth of color.

Planting Instructions:

EASIEST TO START OUTDOORS

Sweet peas must have well-drained soil, so dig deeply and enrich with aged manure or compost before sowing seeds. Erect a well-anchored trellis, vertical netting or other support for vines before planting. Sow seeds in full sun in cool spring weather as early as the ground can be worked.

Plant seeds 1 inch deep and 2 to 3 inches apart. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, thin them 4 to 5 inches apart, to allow plants room to mature.


GROWING NOTES

Sweet peas bloom best before the weather gets too hot, so if spring planting, sow as soon as ground can be worked. Where summer heat comes on fast, they’ll appreciate a spot with afternoon shade. Anchor supports well as vines will grow heavy with bloom. Protect seedlings from birds, slugs and snails. Mulch and keep well watered. For longest bloom, pick flowers often and keep faded blossoms cut.
