Sweet Pea Seeds

We harvested a surfeit of sweet pea seeds from the hilbarn garden this summer, and we'd like to share them with you. Their old-fashioned fragrance and purple and pink blossom make for a cheerful posy. When we first purchased them as a tiny packet of seeds from an old timer at the Longford flower show, we were told to plant them on St Patrick's Day. We've done this for the past five years: enjoyed their potent posi-ness and harvested their seeds for the following season - which have never let us down. So, with our amazing surplus, if you're a new customer and want to sign up to hilbarn fresh produce boxes, we'll send you a welcome packet of seeds in the post. Remember to plant them around March 17th.
