Montana's don't need pruning and will not flower if you cut it back it only flowers on 1 year old growth which is why it didn't flower. Only prune them if they are outgrowing there space and your are willing to sacrifice next years flowering ability. Its pruning group 1 if your looking on the net.

Heating for sheds?

I run tealights in a pot in my mini greenhouse when its going to be really really cold overnight if I am growing sweetpeas. It does work but my main fear is I cause a fire so I don't use them if its windy.

I want to grow the tuberous variety from seed however they seem difficult to grow. Anyone has any experience and when do you sow them. I've grown lobelia seedlings etc which are very small are these more difficult.

Thanks for any replys

Leggy sweet peas???

Posted: 15/12/2013 at 19:01

I don't know about the everlasting ones but the annual ones need to be in a cool environment my first batch last year went leggy as I left them in the house too long. I would shove them in a cold frame now
