sweet pea

June 29, 2021

Sweat peas are one of my most favourite flowers. They’re so delicate. This is the season to stuff a jam jar full of them. Pinks! Lilacs! Scarlets! “Once a wild plant, the bloom enchanted a Sicilian monk at the end of the seventeenth century, and he sent out its seeds across the globe, including to English growers,” writes florist, Nikki Tibbles in House & Garden. “Cultivated over the course of succeeding centuries, it became a firm favourite of the Victorians and has graced green English gardens ever since.” Here, Tibbles shares her tips for how to arrange sweet peas. Just make sure you give them a good sniff. Their scent is divine.
