Sweet Pea Know How

Posted: 11/11/2016 at 14:39

Good heavens Fairygirl, you still have sweet peas in November! I have the opposite problem in SW France. Once the weather heats up into the 30°s in July my sweet peas go brown and that's the end of them. I think they prefer being too cold to being too hot. Not sure why I keep bothering but I love the scent. I don't know anyone else who grows them in this area.

In France, at least in this area, every village has a war memorial with list of names too. Each village has a service by the memorial on the 11th Nov.


I seem to have been doing paper/computer work all day, except for when a friend called round. Not raining, should be outside.

But if the cold frame has a lid they can be protected from the rain so avoiding excess wet and the extra compost will provide more protection.

Morning all.


Good luck DD. I was just worried you'd lose it. I may have got the wrong house or the ad I saw may be out of date. Three years is about average for selling a house in France though. But it's not very likely they've had loads of interest in the current climate.


I hope the weather bucks up, I've got loads of tulips to plant.

Crikey, just looked up those shoes! Punkdoc's wife must have beautiful feet. Mine would never fit into shoes like those. Wellies are more my shape.


We've just watched Close to the Enemy too, found it a bit weird.


I didn't know the price you were offering or what they said DD, but after you showed me photos I saw that house advertised for £120,000. I fear £90,000 wouldn't be enough. It's hard to find a nice flat in Périgueux for that, but I know your town, is less expensive.

Norwich was in favour of remaining, but Norfolk wasn't.


I doubt the UK will ever have full control if it needs to trade.


What about the 48% who voted to stay? More stay voters were the young, the older ones voted out and the young will have to deal with it in the future.

Nemorosas are hardy too, but while they are babies in pots I'd still put them in the cold frame. They should look lovely, even better the year after.

Donald or hillary?

Well said RB.

They may have come from an F1 hybrid plant which doesn't always grow true to type.

Mine stay in the ground too, until spring - that's if we haven't eaten them all by then. Any left then I freeze.
