The Q&A Archives: Too Late To Plant Sweet Peas

Question: Is it too late to plant sweet peas where I live? I live in zone 6 in SW MO.
Thank you

Answer: Sweet peas do not tolerate heat well, so they are usually planted at the same time as garden peas. This would be very early in the season, about a month or so before the last expected spring frost. It is really too late to plant them at the end of May.
