Sweet Peas at Easton
23rd June - 19th July, Tuesday to Sunday, 10.30am - 4pm.
Sweet Pea Season at Easton Walled Gardens is wonderful. Stunning displays of sweet peas, raised tenderly from seed in the greenhouses, pay tribute to the flowers in the meadows, roses and cream teas. The whole garden is filled with the uplifting sights and sounds of summer. We are very well known for our sweet peas and have been experimenting and growing 50 varieties for 20 years. We grow highly scented sweet peas, heritage or antique sweet peas, modern varieties and everything in between!
We have grown sweet peas since 2001; the first year we grew one row. This year we will have up to 50 varieties including our favourites from the trial beds last summer. We now have a dedicated seed production bed in the walled garden and in the vegetable garden and visitors can explore a symphony of colour and scents with heritage, modern, scented, striped, flaked and bicolour sweet peas on display.
Herbaceous displays fill the 80m Long Borders and Velvet Border and throughout the garden, roses are in flower and meadows provide an exuberant display attracting a variety of insects, mammals and birds amongst the grasses and wildflowers.
After exploring the 12 acres of serene gardens, visitors can browse the plant sales in the Courtyard, all plants are chosen by us and are really healthy.
