Sweet Peas

August 11, 2011 at 6:30 pm 1 comment

This year I made sweet peas a must making sure I sowed lots in the flower bed, lots of them in toilet roll tubes in the greenhouse, planting them out at the end of May and looking  after them well.

I love how sweet peas cling to and grow up other plants using them as canes to support themselves like shown here.

 The sweetpeas create a much more interesting backdrop to the bed aswell with their curling tendrils and pretty blooms.

 

I’m also pleased how as the months progress the sweatpeas grow at different rates allowing them to grow alongside later flowering plants prolonging there presence in the flower bed.

Are you growing Sweetpeas? If so which ones?

    You know, it’s too hot for them here in the summer but I bet I could do a bumper crop in the spring. I sort of forgot about them but they are so pretty.
