Thanks well i'm from the northeast too and yes I realise they die down. I wanted something that would grow over the shed in summer but not seal the moisture in over winter and rot it or stop me painting it. That's brilliant ill order the seeds today. I was going to go for purple/ pink one or would you say whites definitely what to go for thanks for the reply

Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 16/02/2014 at 21:22

I had a great display last year thanks to the advice from this forum and this year am growing even more for a bigger display. One thing I was going to ask is does anyone have any advice for growing perennial sweet pea I am wanting to create a hedge to screen off my shed. The questions were is it invasive, when do I sow and will it flower this year?

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

Trouble with ivy also is it tends to trap moisture and rot your shed faster.

Sweet peas, Begonia so far. Will be sowing lobelia the end of this month. Mainly sow in march however. I'm not sure if its too early I often find things this time of year struggle with lack of light and become leggy. I'm growing the begonia seeds under lights at the minute.

Rose questions now I've sorted the begonias :)

The heat in the shops of the ones in aldi wilkinsons tend to force them into growth a bit so have a good look at which ones you choose.
