Planting Sweet Peas

  1. Dig a trench 10 to 12 inches deep, mixing Dolomite into soil on bottom of the trench
  2. Soak the seeds until they puff (about 2 hours)
  3. Inoculate the seeds following the directions on the package
  4. Plant the seeds in the trench
  5. When the plant is 4 to 6 inches tall, fill 2 inches in the trench
  6. As the plant grows, fill the trench to half the height of the plant until level with surface
  7. This method will encourage deep rooting and will keep sweet pea plants short through winter. They will then shoot up in the spring with beautiful blossoms
