The seeds can be soaked for a few hours before planting or you can carefully nick the hard outer coating to get the seeds off to a faster start. Sweet peas grow best in full sunshine, average soil, and regular water during the growing season. As nitrogen-fixing members of the legume family, they require no fertilizer. Sweet peas grow best in the cooler temperatures of early spring, but will continue to bloom over a long season. Hope this answers your question!
