Could I suggest you repost your question here- David has started a sweet pea thread and it would be nice to have all the questions and answers in one place to help other posters?

Erm...I take your point folks, but let's be mindful that this poster has only made 3 posts so far and is probably still finding his way around.

Derrick - I think your sweet peas have been over-watered, this leads to root rot and subsequently yellowing of the leaves. It should be borne in mind that sweet peas (and other plants for that matter) just don't need everyday watering on the dull days we've had this year.

There is one other thing it may be and that is magnesium deficiency, although I think this is less likely.

My sweatpeas have not fllowered yet!  The leaves at the bottom are patchy and yellowy-brown plus some of them are a bit holey!  Maybe I've overwatered them?  Our soil is clay so it holds the moisture so maybe I didn't need to water them as often as I did.  Will they still flower do you think?
