Winter Sweet Peas, grown under glass, have come into much prominence in the last few years particularly, and good prices have on the whole been paid for them. To a large extent they have been displacing the Violet; and to a lesser degree, but still appreciable, the beautiful Lily of the Valley. It is also more than likely that a still greater number of Peas will be upon the wholesale markets in the times ahead. This is made evident by the numerous inquiries that have been appearing in the various trade papers; but growers would be wise to proceed cautiously and not overload the market with these Winter flowers. If everybody rushes into the Sweet Pea growing business, and if the markets are burdened, it follows, as night the day, that prices which heretofore have been sufficiently enticing will fall to zero level, and no one will benefit, possibly not even the public. Yet there is room for very many more Peas, and need for further information in regard to the returns obtainable and how to cultivate and market them, for there are many smaller growers who would be very glad to be able to add Sweet Peas to their Winter cut flower supply if they knew better how to handle the crop and appraise its value to them. It is in order to help them, and to satisfy the eager demand for knowledge of the Winter Sweet Pea crop particularly, that this little book is published.
