Easton Walled Gardens – Sweet Pea Week, 2nd – 9th July



Every year, Lincolnshire’s Easton Walled Gardens raises hundreds of sweet pea plants, a spectacular sight; which can be seen in full bloom during our famous Sweet Pea Week 2nd – 9th July 2017. There will also be over 50 varieties of roses in bloom, creating the perfect English day out.
 
Easton Walled Gardens, which spreads over 12 acres, invites visitors to explore over 100 types of sweet pea - heritage, modern, scented, striped, edged and bicolour. Those wishing to bring a bit of summer to their own homes can buy over 50 seed varieties.
 
We raise the oldest known sweet peas right through to modern grandifloras such as Almost Black; a true spread of varieties, scents and colours. New to the display this year is a collection of semi-grandiflora sweet peas.

These types combine the best of the old with the new - great scent from sweet peas of long ago, produced from larger flowers associated with modern sweet peas. These sweet peas are the best for garden decoration and include great performing varieties such as Kingfisher and Albutt Blue. They will be displayed on caplayed on canes, drums and wigwams throughout the the pickery, vegetable and cottage gardens.
 
Having explored the gardens, guests can visit our well known tea rooms. Sit amongst the roses, overlooking the sweet peas and enjoy a seasonal selection of light lunches and salads from the garden.
