Following the success of Roger’s book “Sweet Peas: an Essential Guide” published in 2011, a second edition is available now and brings us bang up to date.
Soft cover format with 12 chapters and over 150 colour pictures.
This essential guide by Roger Parsons traces the history and development of the sweet pea, explaining how the size and vigour of the species has evolved.
It introduces the different types of sweet pea enjoyed today and describes from a botanic perspective what a sweet pea is and how it grows. Guidance is given to enable gardeners to grow better sweet peas for the garden, cut flowers or exhibition, whether in the UK or elsewhere. Further chapters explain how to keep plants healthy, how to choose varieties and how to produce new varieties. A final chapter introduces other Lathyrus species.
