When is the best time to plant sweet peas? Is it necessary to soak the seeds in water prior to planting?

- Elise R.


Plant sweet pea seeds in October or November in sunny well-prepared beds near something for the vines to climb on. Soaking the seeds overnight before planting them speeds germination but is not critical. Seeds that have not been soaked will still come up.
