Sweet Pea Dorothy Eckford

This product will be shipped on 6th September 2024

One of Henry Eckford's finest, introduced in 1901 and named for one of his daughters. This is a slightly hooded white heirloom variety. These heirloom flowers are smaller than the "Spencer" types, but they make up for this in producing lots of blooms, flowering early and having fabulous scent. 

Please be aware that the seeds are often 'split', however this will not affect germination.

All our seed is hand harvested from plants grown in East Anglia. 

Scent Rating 5/5.
