Meet our modern Grandiflora with bewitching flushed flowers and a deliciously sweet fragrance. An ideal variety for cutting, this sweet pea will also breathe new life into your borders. Its petals have a charming violet overlay like a brushstroke of watercolour on paper, and they peek out from pretty green buds. At Easton Walled Gardens, we like to grow the Kingfisher with our semi-grandifloras as it’s quite a tall plant.

Capturing the Gardens’ magic in a illustrated seed tin…
Sweet pea seeds grown and harvested with this much care deserve to have a thoughtful container to keep them stable and dry. So we made a fully-recyclable seed tin – decorated with an original Easton Collection design. Created by Ursula Cholmeley and blooming with sweet peas, the design reflects the colours found in the Arts and Crafts motifs of the Edwardian era when sweet peas were as adored at Easton as they are today.
