Our News for 2019
Last year we had a great start to the showing season in receiving a Gold medal at the Chelsea Flower Show followed by Gold at Chatsworth and Gold at Hampton Court. Tatton Park however we only managed a Silver Gilt which was due to the hot summer that we had and the flower stems being a lot shorter than normal at that time of year. With the summer being so hot for a long period of time the plants never recovered and this made our flowering season the shortest in a long time.
This year the season is slightly earlier than last years in the fact that the winter months were not as cold and the light levels have been better. Easter was very hot and made the plants grow faster and we got our first flower out so hopefully we should have flowers for Chelsea unless it goes colder.
It is the last Eckford sweet pea show in Wem this year after a run of 30 years. We have done all thirty shows and will miss the best sweet pea show in the world.
Buy Sweet Pea seeds using our website; we stock nearly 50 varieties, many of which we have bred ourselves. All of the other varieties have been selected by us as the very best available for perfume, colour and quality. In addition to selling our named Sweet Pea varieties individually, we have put together a selection of collections and mixed packets, each chosen for a particular theme.
Sorry, but the nursery is not open to the public.
Eagle Sweet Peas are a specialist producer and retailer of Sweet Pea seeds. As a breeder of new Sweet Pea varieties, in 2014 we were thrilled to announce the release of our new variety HELEN MILLAR. In 2017 we released PATRICA MARLYN, MARK WILLIAMS and EVIE JONES. Last year we released ARIANNE. Over the years we have been awarded numerous RHS Gold Medals, but pride of place must go to the many Chelsea Gold Medals that we have won.
