Linzy that made me LOL and tell my OH  I find some strange things in the washer when I empty it that the boys have left (usually money and headphones or school letters) but never any seeds  Headphones work after being washed but nit sue about seeds....and nit sure about the tumbler 

By the way yes your news was fab 

*whispers* they were cheap eBay jobbers not the good stuff anyway so I composted em! Maybe I'll have a good sp crop randomly thruout the garden when I use the compost next year!

I thought you wanted Brazil to win David?? You do confuse me sometimes 

Yeah they're on my list David, it's a frilly one I have bursting forth at the mo.
Grow tubes, seed compost, cold frame also on the list, any other 'must haves' for autumn?

I don't know David.....but the original tangerine army aren't even wearing tangerine, most disappointed

Only in my garden David, but I don't actually live in Blackpool  We did 'steal' our colours from Holland, don't know if you knew that fact of the day?

Ah yes sorry I forgot the jargon!

I didn't know that either David and I think I have a picotee variety in my mix....fab, I like frilly  I've just checked and I do, Keira Madeline 

Linzy, sorry I typed sticks earlier and it wouldn't let me type anything else!!  David taught me to have little twigs and sticks to support the baby sweet peas, there are pictures somewhere on this thread

Love the lilac coloured ones, that is one of my favourite colours, in fact all shades of purple are my favourite colour.....apart from yellow 

My sweet peas are thriving -  I have put in 2m canes but some of the main stems are now outgrowing these! Would it do any damage if I nipped out the bit where the tendrils grow? Its my first time growing them; when my grandma told me how well their sweet peas were growing last year, I actually thought that she was talking about a vegetable....

It's 'Dot Com', OL....listed as 'blue ripple'.

Btw, you'll be pleased to know that the colour yellow has so far eluded sweet breeders.

Do you remember the Poster who showed us her tattoo's, didnt she say her yellow sweet peas were growing lovely?

Orchid Lady

That was Sweetpea Lyn, not sure she said yellow but may have missed it, I know I she lost quite a few plants though.

I thought I'd never seen yellow ones David, I'm not sure I'd actually like bright yellow sweet peas, although it's a lovely sunny colour I prefer it on sunflowers, daffodils, roses etc.....although a pale yellow, like a creamy lemon colour would look nice
