Owl's Acre Seed

First Cut

Elizabeth Crawford

My Sweet Peas started flowering here in South Devon nearly two weeks ago! I've cut back most of the flowers in the hope that the plants will generate a bit more vegetative vigour before putting on thir full floral display through July and August. The heirlooms varieties in particular have been very eager to flower - 'Wretham Pink' and 'Cupani' in particular have been beautiful (a mix of 'Cupani' and 'Matucana' are shown in the foreground here).
