Not quite sure what was meant about staying in tall pot for life. Don't these get planted outside in the soil. If I'm being dim...sorry!

Didn't know that you could grow 2 per pot....will be potting mine on to-morrow and doing a lot of pinching out...
this will be my first effort, growing sweet peas from seed....

Seems to miss saying what time of year you pot on the sweet peas and then says do not plant out for 3/4 weeks, from what month?
I am starting my sweet peas this week Oct. but need to know when I pot on.

wanted to learn how to grow sweet peas from seed and then pot them on. Found it confusing that monty advised using 3 inch pots, then for the potting on video sarah takes over going from root trainers into pots. wouldnt it of been more helpful if the advice was just from one expert, then the videos would link much better from stage to stage. I was also abit dissapointed that varietys werent mentioned (are there any eaiser types to grow? etc) as the videos are obviously aimed at beginers.
