General Manager, Peter Burks said: “Throughout the week we will be highlighting one of the most beautiful and quintessentially British annual flowers, sweet peas.
“We will have lots of sweet pea seeds and young plants in stock for the event, and visitors can take home a free advice leaflet, while stocks last.”
Visitors will be helped to choose what type of sweet pea would suit them and given details on how to care for them, so that they get an abundance of colour in their gardens this summer.
The plant’s history stems back to the 17th century. In 1699, a Sicilian monk, Father Cupani, sent the seeds of some small, fragrant flowers to an English schoolmaster and horticulturalist, Dr Robert Uvedale.
Once cultivated in Britain, the new plant became an instant hit with its outstanding scent, pretty flowers and attractive climbing habit.
