Sweet Pea Seedlings

I happened to have some sweet pea seeds and thought it would be fun to see if I could get them to sprout. Here are some pictures and a little how-to if you want to try it yourself!

I first took the seeds and cut off the tips with a chipper.

Then I laid the seeds out on a wet paper towel and placed them inside a plastic bag. After putting them on my sunniest window ledge, I checked them every week and sure enough …

They started to sprout, and as you can see I was able to plant them. They have since grown into a lovely vine that will hopefully have the beautiful flowers pictured below, courtesy of www.growinganything.com.

I’ll try to update as it continues to grow!
