The Sweet Pea Book by Graham Rice, Judywhite

The sweet pea is one of the most popular and evocative of summer flowers, loved for its unsurpassed fragrance, range of colours and ease of cultivation. Authoritative and inspiring, this comprehensive guide covers the history of the sweet pea, how it is classified and detailed descriptions of all available varieties. Both keen gardeners and green-fingered beginners will find the information on how to raise, grow and breed sweet peas indispensable, while practical tips and expert advice on problems, pests and diseases ensure that these beautiful blooms thrive in any environment. Featuring stunning illustrations throughout by award-winning American garden photographer Judy White, this classic guide is a must whether you are growing sweet peas in the garden, displaying them in the house, exhibiting them, or are simply a lover of these glorious plants.
