Well, the whole summer, the more you pick the more you get, so think daily fresh flowers, and when the house is full you give hem to co workers, neighbours etc. Lots of farmers in UK sell them at the gate too. The fragrance is unbelievable, they really are hand in hand with old fashioned roses for the stars of an English flower garden in my opinion....but then I love anything from a cottage garden, especially the annuals so I'm biased. Incidently, despite thier blowsy appearance I have noticed a lot of men love sweet peas too.
