Caring for sweet peas whilst on holday

Posted: 21/06/2013 at 06:54

My sweet peas are flowering and most are in bud and about to flower. I am about to go on holiday for two weeks and am mindful that I won't be here to cut the lowers. In order to stop the plants turnsector seed, is it safe to cut all buds thus preventing flooring when I'm away or o I just have to accept Willbthe I will return to seed pods? I cannt rely on my neighbours to cut them.

Whilst they promised a full refund I have had to contact them yet again to ask where the refund is. I have sent them photographic evidence of the poor plants/packaging and yet they can not even be bothered to acknowledge my E Mail. I have since written to Tony Milne the MD who states on there Web Site .. ""We want you to be delighted with the products and services you buy from us. We are determined that you receive the very best quality in the market. If for any reason we don't get it right, then just contact us within 7 days of receipt, and we will happily offer you advice, a replacement or a full refund." Tony Milne, MD

I swapped from GardenDirect this year to the Canny Gardener - ordered Begnoias and Geraniums amonst other plants. Both the Geraniums and Begonias arrived in damaged polystyrene boxes and the plants were either dead or damaged beyond use. Customer services offered a replacement which never came. Have been offered a full refund which is fine but I am now short of plants for the garden. My advice is to stay well clear of this organisation the quality of the plants is beyond a joke.
