Glenys


Dear Friends:

I love sweet peas and have been growing them for most of my life. My commitment to quality led me to experiment with different seeds, looking for the best flowers. I discovered that the English “Spencer” sweet pea seeds yielded a truly extraordinary bloom. The flowers produced have amazingly long stems, plus extra-large, frilly-edged blossoms.

Not only are these sweet peas more beautiful, but they are remarkably strong growers, producing hundreds of superior flowers. Anyone can grow these extraordinary flowers. All you need to get started is the seed. I will guarantee that any seed you buy from me will grow!

I am thrilled to offer you England’s finest “Spencer” sweet peas. Choose one of my seed collections or select your own varieties. Sweet pea seeds make unique and wonderful gifts for friends who garden. Visit my Seeds or Planting Supplies and Sweet Pea Products pages for more information.

If you have any questions, I would love to talk with you, please feel free to email me, sweetp@sonic.net.

Sincerely,
Glenys Johnson, Owner
Enchanting Sweet Peas

P.S. I will be happy to refund your money of you are not completely satisfied with your seeds.
