Collection Cancer

The Cancer garden grown from seed is built around your spirit flower, the Sweet Pea.

Cancer people, summer people! You embody the apex of summer’s glory. You love to soak up the hard work and watch your garden flourish. You like to spend long hours wandering your garden rows, pondering the big questions, and taking in the day.

Sweet Peas are a little fussy and prefer to grow in the sun, but with their roots cool. So, we start with three of the most incredible Sweet Pea Varieties around: Cupani Sweet Pea, Miss Wilmott Sweet Pea, and Mammoth Salmon Cream Sweet Pea. To plant around the base of the Sweet Pea vines, to keep the roots cool and to give you something to nibble on, (the Sweet Peas are toxic tho, don't eat those!), plant the edible and short: Freckles Viola, Gem Pink Antique Viola, and Cream Troika Nasturtium.

Includes six types of Cancer-esque flower seed tubes, individually packed in a little cotton bag

Specific planting instructions are printed on each individual seed tube, but general instructions are below
