sweet pea framework

I agree Emma - they look fine, but will need some strings going horizontally between the canes to help them scramble up.  When they start flowering remember to keep picking them - the more you pick, the more flowers you will get.  As soon as they set seed (which look like little pea pods) then the plant will stop producing flowers, but if you pick them, they will flower all summer.


I'll look for David's thread now, and see if I can bump it up

My Davidii is now a teenager...

Morning early birds Have a good trip Liri - hope the plumbing gets sorted.


Interesting fact for you all .....this year at Chelsea the biggest exhibit in the floral marquee is being done by Bowden Hostas (after years and years of it being the Hillier display).  They are theming it round a carriage from the Orient Express.  Said carriage lives in Battersea, about a mile away from the Chelsea showground, however there are weight restrictions on the bridges across the Thames, so to get it there they have to go south to the M25, round to the M4, and back in to London that way .....its going to take 7 hours .......something to think about when the display gets featured on the tellybox
