Bulk Pisum Sativum seeds are a popular choice among gardeners. They offer an exotic selection of bright, fragrant flowers in an array of hues. Seed catalogs and seeds can be ordered online.
The species is native to Thailand, but has now become popular around the world. It's a hardy, evergreen perennial that flourishes in many different environments. It prefers full sunshine and well-drained, sandy or rocky soil. In colder climates it needs less water and lower temperatures.
Flowering time starts in late spring and extends into early summer. Flowers come up as lavender, blue-green, orange and purple. Each petal contains five to nine oval petals, with the center stem base often having a waxy texture. The flower heads are large and round, composed of five pointed capsules topped with a single pearl. The terminal flower spike has one pointed spur and a large, tapered flower head. The blooming period is from early summer through early fall.
Seed catalogs list these plants as having the combination of Ligusticum (rootstock) with Polypodas (stalk). It's a perennial that needs to be planted from seed every two years. The best growing season is spring. Flowers open up as early as four weeks after planting. Full blooms arrive in late summer.
Heavy rains usually interfere with growth. However, occasional flooding does not. Pots should be filled just before potting, and holes dug a foot or two deeper than the roots. Grass grows quite well in containers, but not on the tree trunk. Shrubs and ground covers also do well in larger pots. Soils used for growing in bulk should be rich in nutrients and be well-drained.
Good pruning and shaping will help to keep them healthy. They are self-limiting and do not like being cut down. They enjoy climbing and hanging in trees. Once established, they like full shade and well-drained, porous soil.
Younger seeds are called cinnamomum and look like miniature cinnamomum blossoms. They produce little bluish-white flowers in a variety of colors. Seedlings are best planted in dense shade. They are self-limiting and don't like being cut down. They enjoy full shade and well-drained, porous soil.
The nectar-producing cinnamomum flowers are massed together at the peak of the florist flower. As a grower, you can enjoy the colorful flowers for months. To get the most from the bulk Pisum seeds, plant them in thick shade in deep, well-drained soil. Water regularly and fertilize if needed. They will reward you with beautiful blooms.
To prepare bulk Pisum seeds for planting, mix coarse sand or gravel in well-drained, sandy soil. Plant the seeds on top of the sand or gravel to create a tight root system. Water daily until the soil is soft and you can easily move the pots.
After the bulk Pisum seeds are planted, spread them out evenly on a bed of well-rooted grass. Grass provides good drainage and soil texture. Make sure you add plenty of compost and manure to the bed as it develops. The soil should be moist but not wet.
For planting, dig a hole that is one to two feet deep, and then spread out the seeds on top of the grass. Cover the seeds gently with the dirt, making sure the depth is not more than an inch. The hole should be wide enough to accommodate at least four pots. Fill the hole with some compost and manure, and rake around the edges to break up the dirt. Water the area well, and check frequently that the hole is airtight. It should remain dry through the entire season.
The first year the plants begin to sprout new leaves. In the late summertime, lift the plants gently from the ground and plant them in individual pots. In the early fall before frost, repot the plants into bulk, tightly packed seed packs. The plants will grow and flourish with this method for the next year. If rerouting occurs, allow the plants to develop at their maximum potential before repotting them again.
By now, your plants should be producing leaves and growing well. Harvest the plants regularly to encourage growth. Be sure not to harvest seed packets or young plants until they are at least five weeks old. You may choose to freeze the bulk Pisum seeds if you are going to harvest them later.
