My "Wall" of sweet peas today before i start to pick

Cupani is one I've always grown David - not sure why I or when I first tried it and although it's small, it's really pretty , the scent is great and the colours work with what i like to grow elsewhere!

Ann  you must get a lovely wall of scent when you're near those!

David - I think that might be the reason I first grew them- the fact that they had some history. I knew they were amongst the oldest ones but not sure if I knew the whole story - or maybe I've just forgotten! It's nice to have something still growing well today after hundreds of years. Matucana is very similar and is often mistaken for it but I've not grown that before.

If I sow only long stemmed varieties in different colours next year and save and sow the seed the following year, will the resulting plants all be long stemmed even if they don't come true to the parent plants colour?

Hi, I am new to this forum and to gardening in general. I grew a mix of sweetpeas this year and they are beautiful but some are short stemmed and not great for cutting. If I sow only long stemmed varieties in different colours for next year and save and sow the seed the following year, will the resulting plants all be long stemmed even if they don't come true to the parent plants colour?

David would you please write the dimension of your pots down I have bought sum and would like to know if they are the right height. at the bottom of your trench do you add any horse muck to your soil.
