* "Fragrant and very attractive" - ​​this is how the botanical name of the plant is translated from Greek.
China fragrant is an annual plant with climbing stems, up to 200 cm high. Over the summer, the plant produces such a number of inflorescences as no other and therefore is valued as a cut crop. It is necessary to cut off the inflorescences of peas, as this stimulates the formation of new ones in even greater numbers.
Sweet peas bloom from June until the first frost. Peas are very photophilous and cold-resistant, tolerating short-term frosts down to -5°C. It develops more readily in sunny places protected from the wind, in light fertile soil without fresh organic fertilizers.
Do not overfeed peas with nitrogen fertilizers, as their excess stimulates intensive growth of green mass at the expense of flowering. Water the plants rarely, but plentifully. With a lack of moisture, the buds fall, and the flowers become smaller and quickly wither. The most optimal time for watering is 1 time in 10 days. You need to direct the sweet pea stems to the supports as soon as possible, otherwise, you risk breaking the fragile stems. The shape of the support can be the most diverse, but most often peas are grown on trellises or in pyramids.
