    Waitrose had them last year. I bought one.
    They've got perennial peas in again, not sure of exact varieties though.

    They give sweet pea type flowers, year after year, but are coarser than sweet peas and have no scent.  They can get quite big and need tying up well. Other than that they are easy to look after, you just shear then to  6 inches every autumn, and in Spring , off they go again.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
