These floral beasties are of the type ‘Early Multiflora Gigantea’…so yes…they are early, productive…and…well….mammoth. I was put on to this variety by a couple of flower farmers/wedding florists I know…they swore by it.
Mammoth are the best selling sweet [eas in this ‘er seed shop’. Heaps of flower farmers get their seed stock from Higgledy. I suspect that Mammoth is a good seller for them. Reliable straight stems….a good colour range…and good scent.
In my experience, they also come earlier than some of their sweet pea mates…and are very good for super early flowers that are raised in the greenhouse.
