Flower of the week: sweet peas

June 23, 2011

The sweet peas I’ve lovingly tended from seed are going mental – they’re growing about an inch a day and I can’t wait for them to come out. They’re such an English classic and perfect for a June wedding (just make sure you put your bouquet in some water during the reception, as they tend to wilt on a hot summer’s day). This simple bouquet by G Lily (below) features unusual green and white euonymous, which perfectly complements the delicate frilled petals of the pink sweet peas. Tomorrow I’m visiting Bex at Blush Floral Design, who’s busy preparing a wedding full of fragrant sweet peas. Can’t wait to see what she’s got planned…

How my sweet peas started off as seed in April…

How they looked 10 days ago…

And how they look now! Monty Don, take note…

  1. Love this! My mum started planted sweet pea seeds about a month ago and they’re growing so quick. Can’t wait to see the flowers!
