Make sure the root ball of the Sweet Pea is well-moistened by soaking it in a bucket full of lukewarm water overnight. Prepare a suitable hole in fertile, well-drained soil. Plant the root ball at the correct depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil, press firmly and water immediately after planting. Improve your garden soil by mixing in some compost. Choose a place in full sun or light dappled shade for the Lathyrus latifolius.

Sweet Pea is a perennial plant

The Sweet Pea is an excellent perennial vine that will climb naturally on almost any support. They grow well against a trellis fence or a wire netting. You can create beautiful harmonies with climbing roses or it can even be planted alone as a shrub


The Sweet Pea is a strong climber that requires minimal maintenance. Give it extra water during dry periods. Remove the faded flowers regularly to promote the growth of its pods. Provide this climber with a mulch of compost and garden manure at the end of winter. Protect Lathyrus latifolius during the winter against frost with fallen leaves or branches. The stems of this plant may die back during the winter, however, in the spring, new shoots will appear once again from the roots. You can then cut off any old stems.


The beautiful Sweet Pea is a climbing plant. Thus, this multi-climber is sometimes called 'Hard Pea'. The flowers strongly resemble the well known annual sweet pea. Although they have no scent they make excellent cut flowers and the colours are very appealing in a vase. Lathyrus latifolius can climb to about 2 metres high.
