Species pea.
any idea what this species pea is? I was given the seed years ago [by scotsgran?] of course the label is still in the soil but the ink isn't!



L. Clymenum Chelsea?
But I'm hoping it's L. Tingitanus because that's funnier

L. odoratus maybe 'Surprise'. I do not recall sending you the seeds but perhaps someone else may remember doing so. Might be the ones suitable for hanging baskets L. 'Sugar and Spice'. I know I had them from the potato day in Edinburgh.

There is no scent to this one and I think it is probably L tingitanus. I have a vague recollection that it began with t. It must be about 4 years ago since I got the seed.

I wonder who sent me the seed then if it wasn't you.

I have just checked the seed distribution list for 2015/16. L.tingitanus is listed in there. I have been packing seeds for them since before that date and I possibly bought or was given these to make up an order. I did grow them myself so maybe I did send them. Seed left over after the orders are picked and dispatched are offered for sale at the shows at 20p each or 6 for £1. It is such a bargain. L. tingitanus has no scent.

That will confirm it as L tingitanus then. Thanks Sg.
