last year i planted from seed and had what id call a bush of sweet peas in a lovely sunny spot and kept the seeds for this year.
i gave my grandam some plants that id grown from seed the same time as i planted mine out and hers failed miserably. her friend told her to soak the seeds in a small bit of water for a day or so then plant them out. personally ive never done this, only planted them in a pot/plugs then left them in the green house and plantes out when ready. i cheated this year and bougt plugs from b&q As we didnt move in till the start of feb and by the time we got settled i didnt have time to do it from seed.
i cannot wait for my first pick to pop on the kitchen table
