Just because we have some recent cold weather doesn’t mean our plants in the Titan Garden are at a standstill. Below the cold ground, seeds and bulbs are busy storing energy to send up spring foliage. And some of the seeds have already started. In the picture, you can see the sweet pea seeds planted by the kindergarten classes just emerging from the ground.
Sweet peas bloom best before the heat of summer comes on so many gardeners plant them in our mild winters and give them a head start. We have them covered to protect them from this unusual arctic blast of cold weather and we hope they’ll continue growing strong. Once they get tall anough, we’ll put in a trellis for them to climb, as sweet peas are a climbing vine.
