Quite agree! This is the first year I have attempted growing sweet peas and I've been delighted with the result. Every week we have 1-2 posies of fresh flowers that bring charm, colour and a delightful scent to the home. It is great that you must keep cutting them as you have a summer long supply of fresh, free flowers, and the more you cut, the more that grow.
I have had my allotment since the beging of April and once we got it dug over and put lots of veg in, we decided to try 2 variety's of sweet peas. one which dies at the end of the year, this is producing pure white flowers which I picked my first bunch yesterday. My lounge smells lovely, I need to get more small vases so I can have some in each room. The second variety which is everlasting has not flowered yet, but you can see that it won't be too long. I will definitely do them again next year.

Can not agree more Sweet peas are wonderful flowers for home. But any suggestions on bud drop which I have had a problem with this year.
I'm growing Sweet peas for the first time and love the smell. I had not thought to cut them and bring them indoors. Thank you Tracy J. for mentioning it. I wonder if I should harvest the peas for eating or for sowing next spring.


Just started growing sweet peas beeeeautiful scents, my plant only seems to flower from the top, am i doing anything wrong.
Some years I have sown my sweet-peas Oct-Nov but mostly late Jan so as to have strong plants for early planting as there is large areas of tarmac around our bungalow and the boarders are across a large lawn I grow the sweet-peas in large tubs My wife was cutting the first flowers third week in May this year to keep them flowering the tubs need to be flooded with water once a week.
