Description

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

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!), plant the edible and short: Freckles Viola, Gem Pink Antique Viola, and Cream Troika Nasturtium.

Includes 6 seed tubes; specific planting instructions are on each individual seed tube, but basic instructions are below.


  • DEER Deer resistant
  • KIDS+PETS Non-toxic
  • CLIMATE Likes warm summers
  • WATER Drought tolerant
  • INDOOR+POTSCan be grown in a container with support

How to Plant

Tuck seeds 1/8" deep, 2" apart. Water gently and regularly as seedlings emerge over the next 2 wks. Once babies are 2” tall, pluck so there's just one per 12"

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, and space seeds 2" apart, thin plants to about 9" apart.

When to Plant

Plant outside after your average last frost in the spring.

When to Expect Blooms

Mid-summer through frost.

Care Instructions

Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick the flowers regularly (Bring the flowers in! Make bouquets! Have fun!) to encourage more blooms. And ask us any questions along the way.
