Peas galore: Now is the time to plant your edible Peas and your Sweet Peas. At Starke Ayres we have garden peas and mange tout peas available.
In the Sweet Pea range, we have dwarf Sweet Peas (great for pots, hanging baskets and troughs), tall Sweet Peas (these need a trellis, fence or a bamboo wigwam) and also a fantastic range of special Sweet Peas called Heirloom Heritage Collection. These are really spectacular and are all highly fragrant.

Most of us are faced with the challenge of keeping our gardens in good condition in the hot and windy conditions we are experiencing at the moment. Back from holiday we might also have to do a lot of rescue work in the garden. January does not only mark the period for our children to go back to school, but also reminds us that we should get our gardens back in shape. There is a lot to be done in the garden this month, so try to do your gardening chores in the early morning or in the late afternoon. Click on the pdf to download the tips.
