How many Sweet Peas?

Ball park? Many, many stems. When I buy sweet peas wholesale at the SF Flower Mart, I buy them by the bunch – not sure how many stems are in each wholesale bunch as I’ve never counted. The bunches are sometimes small/short and sometimes tall with lots of tendrils, depending on who I’m buying from. If I wanted to make ALL of the things you listed here with sweet peas, I’d probably estimate 15-20 large grower’s bunches which then would each take a fair amount of time to untangle and cut to the appropriate stem lengths for each bouquet or arrangement. Also important to keep in mind that sweet peas are fairly fragile and temperature sensitive, so they don’t make very good boutonnieres – they crush easily and don’t do well out of water for long. I’d advise against making your bouts out of sweet peas.

Goodness Gracious, I love sweetpeas!  They are very small and delicate little flowers so you’ll need a lot…..they come 10 stems to the bunch.  I would say that you would need about 8-10  bunches for your bouquet alone.  And I agree with Snapdragon on the bouts, one hug and they’d fall apart.

I sell DIY flowers by the bunch (instead of by the box), check out my website at http://www.FlowerMoxie.com

Most my clients email me pics of what they want, and I make a custom quote.

We also have videos to help DIY brides:

In that photo there isn’t any sweet peas….however, the silvery leaf is Dusty Miller.  Queen Anne’s Lace is by the pink stock.

Hope that helps!
