Growi g sweet peas and beans together is fIne
However. I would put one sweet Pea per cane. They will swamp your beans otherwise
How about 2 wigwams though? One for beans and one for sweet Peas? Spacing about 6" for both beans and sweet Peas
A mulch for walking on is good idea. I prefer my sweet Peas to be all same colour too. White aNd scented
I've grown sweet peas and runner beans, just as you said, but I always grow 2 beans per cane. The sweet peas don't do that well here, South West France, so I put them on the shadier side because it can be too hot for them in summer. Now I just do beans, but it used to work as you said when I lived in England. I put rotted manure in the bottom. It doesn't have to be homemade compost, you can buy a bag of something water retaining and soil improving like compost or rotted manure. You can do a 9 pole wigwam, I had a neighbour who used to do a 12 pole one, it depends how much room you have.
Hello happy. 9 sweet peas is exactly the number I plant. They will smother your wigwam and look wonderful....no problem. I pinch them out too to encourage bushyness.
Dig a reasonable hole and incorporate some compost or manure and some fish blood n bone fertiliser. And pick, pick and pick again. Enjoy your sweet peas happy
Glad you are pleased with the fence.
Hello, I've sent you a message.
I would use a mixture, but others may say differently. Here in France I wouldn't have the choice as they don't sell J I, but I found it very good in the past. I use organic fertiliser which is slow release so you don't need to renew it very often, perhaps monthly it should say on the packet. I hope the pot is quite deep.
