Nothing else gives you scent like sweet peas. You could buy some already germinated babies.
Or morning glory is pretty, in the morning. And canary creeper and climbing (trailing) nasturtiums
I do like sweetpeas, I'd be tempted to have another go now that it's warmer and get some already grown in. Just sowed climbing nasturtians today, really easy to grow and I love the seeds
B&Q have sweet pea for sale - my local store had them reduced on the bargain trolley today with lots of other plants - they were healthy looking. If u have a B&Q locally it would be worth a visit - Good Luck!
Oh Dove what a shame. As others have suggested there will be plant sto be had at GCs etc but you can still buy a packet of seed and sow them It just means they'll flower a bit later.
Sorry REDD I wrote Dove by mistake
I know Verdun....it's already on...
Buy new seed, could try soaking existing seed overnight & re-sow.
If you only need a few, I'd go with a quick trip to B&Q.
i had the same problem earlier this year and so second time around i slit the seeds ever so slightly and have 2 germinating after only about 4-5 days
I sowed mine (Cupani) on Sunday - they're in root trainers in the mini-greenhouse at the moment - fingers crossed
I had meant to sow them last autumn, but what with Aged Ps' shenanigans ....
Cupani is one of my favourites Dove and I sowed mine end of March on kitchen window sill with radiator below and plastic cover. They were through in a week. Did some others 2 weeks later or so and tthey're mostly through. Think a bit of heat helps to get them going but they should be fine outside now especially with a bit of protection. I used to score them or soak them prior to sowing but after the piece on G's W last year I didn't bother this time and it made no difference to germination rate. I put mine outside for a short while in the sun yesterday.
Verdun-didn't Dove's cake fill you up enough...
