Growing Calendar for Dolichos Lab-lab (Hyacinth Pea) - Seeds
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
This is the climber for you if you are looking for sophisticated purple pea flowers appearing from the ground to above head height. This half hardy annual climber is a great addition to your summer garden. Just find an area of wall or grow up a supporting trellis and enjoy watching this climbing plant develop to give out attractive leaves, highly-scented purple flowers and attractive purple pods.
The flower stems and leaves look lovely in a bouquet or vase display. Just partner with summer flowers like roses, perennials and grasses for combinations big on texture and scent.
In the garden surround your climbing Dolichos Lab-lab (Hyacinth pea) with complementing purple flowers and bedding. Petunias, lobelias and purple salvias all make suitable flowers to go hand in hand with lab-lab.
Cut back in autumn or once the first frosts make an appearance so you can enjoy the summer display as long as possible. Even after flowering the purple pods make an attractive feature of your climbing plant.
Simply sow lab-lab between March and May in individual 9cm pots in soil covered by a thin layer of vermiculite. When your seeds germinate keep them watered from below and mist the leaves. In May June position you plant in the centre of a pot near to the wall with trellis or at the base of a bamboo wigwam.
Keep the seed-heads on your plants; they are attractive and add texture to your flower garden. Cut flowers when they have seed heads as well as when they are in full flower for your indoor vases.
This is really rewarding as you get tons of potential plants for great value. You can keep seeds for a long time- even buying them out of season and waiting until the appropriate time of year. Read our guide on how to get successful flowers from seed.
