Much awaited seeds have started to arrive in the mail and I'll directly sow most right into the ground come May. Others though require that extra bit of attention in order to germinate. Nature would normally do the work for us. However, this plant is uncommonly found at nurseries and therefore necessitates planting from seed. Like the sweet pea, Lathyrus vernus needs a two day soak before it'll even consider sprouting. I'm thrilled to discover how beautiful each seed is in its own right. Spring here we come!
