I grow them in the same way each year. I stick a row of poles into the ground, I have 8 poles in a row this year. I plant a sweet pea plant at the bottom of each pole & gradually as they grow I tie them to the pole. That way you get lovely long stems for cutting.
This year I shall be sowing my sweet pea seeds in the autumn, hopefully I shall end up with some earlier pickings next year. Though due to the dire weather we experienced earlier on this year it may have accounted for their late appearance.
Anyway I ordered my sweet pea seeds & more from Moreveg This supplier is ideal for those of us with smaller plots. Smaller packets of seeds of which a lot of the packets are priced at 50p. They do lots of great offers, & have some unusual seeds too. I got oodles & oodles of seeds & spent about £11. Ideal for those of you with a larger plot too & wish to have a dabble at something new. Also I received a handwritten note when I received my order which is always nice & a speedy delivery too.
The lovely lady Bev who sent me my seeds in the seedy pen pal swap has her won little blog. She has recently started posting again after a long break, do take a look. myadventuresinfoodandgardening
