Johnson’s Sweet Peas

Ø   Introduction


About Us


Johnson's careful nurturing and years of experience have made us a respected grower of quality Sweet Pea plants.

With a good range to choose from, you're sure to find just what you're looking for!


Our traditionally grown Sweet Pea seedlings have been carefully sown in the Autumn to produce healthy, vigorous plants, fully hardened off and ready for planting during March and April.


They have been individually grown as large plug plants in deep rootrainers to produce a large root system to aid easy establishment.

Our Sweet Peas are available in a range of specially designed colour blends.


Johnson's have been producing these sought after, quality plants for sale since 2007. We are always happy to offer help and advice on all things Sweet Pea.


Philip Johnson has been growing autumn sown Sweet Peas for over 35 years.


During that time he has become a prominent member of the National Sweet Pea Society. As well as a keen exhibitor he has gone on to judge at major shows.

He was made an honorary member of the Kent Federation of Horticultural Societies in 2009 in recognition for 25 years service as a Sweet Pea judge.

He is a former chairman of the NSPS / Royal Horticultural Society Sweet Pea trials held at RHS Wisley Garden, Surrey.

Philip is currently serving as a member of RHS Herbaceous Committee.


But Philip is not just a Sweet Pea nut. He works as a professional gardener where he is well respected for his skills and experience.

He has an eye for design and colour which is reflected in the current selection of colour blends.

In addition to this he runs a small nursery offering a range of plants available at selected Plant Fairs in Kent and the South East.


Philip operates throughout Kent, where he specialises in pruning, particularly fruit and climbers. If you are interested in discussing a garden project, please contact us.


Philip is available to present an illustrated talk, "Growing and Showing Sweet Peas". This usually lasts up to an hour for Horticultural Societies and other interested groups.
