This seed backet (50 seeds) is a fun thing to tuck in a card as a nice surprize for that gardner in your life. The first appearance of sweet peas in writing and in art was in the late 1600s. Their first penned name was “Lathyrus distoplatyphylos, hirsutus, mollis, magno et peramoeno, flare odoro” or “a type of pea with different broad leaves; hairy, soft, large and delightful, with a blown up scent.” Sweet peas are not the same as edible garden peas, in fact, they are toxic. Do not consume. From the Hudson Valley Seed Library, heirloom and open-pollinated garden seeds with packets that are beautiful garden-themed contemporary art.
