June has been HECTIC. In between deadlines, trips, shoots and stress, the cutting patch in our back garden has been keeping me sane. The sweet peas are thriving and I’m able to fill a jam jar a day with flowers – the more you pick, the more they grow. This year, I planted an old-fashioned ‘heirloom’ mix of bi-colour, highly-perfumed sweet peas and a lot of my favourite Matucana ones, too, which have piercing violet and crimson petals and a strong, sweet fragrance. Apparently, Matucana was first introduced into Britain in the 17th century by Sicilian monk, Franciscus Cupani, so it’s an ancient variety, but a good one.
