Yvie - Great to hear your autumn sown SPs have been successful & are giving you pleasure. Of course, Eagle SPs (and other suppliers) do offer seed specifically for scent.....alas, they may not be the colours you want. as you say, it's a trade-off. It may be worth noting that the dark colours, verging on mauve have the strongest scent.

Although there are some excellent suppliers of sweet pea seed out there, I recommend Eagle, as I know the dedication & hard work that goes into producing their excellent seed.

Regards posting pics of my own SPs, I think folks must be fed-up of seeing them by now,  instead, i'll post a pic of my friends Jenny & Derek....Mr & Mrs Eagle.

Maybe I haven't woke up yet.....but haven't a clue what we're talking about   I have been known to dabble in a little diy/woodwork.

Well, TBH I've grown tomatoes successfully for more years than most of the GW team have been around...Alas, I know absolutely zilch about Peru, let alone its soil & climate.

Missed it fortunately, but yes, I can well see the comparison with today's Beechgrove and GW of yesteryear......the penny may drop eventually!

Hi, rosemummy

I'm really chuffed to hear your autumn SPs have done well.

As regards 'saying thanks', I'm rather puzzled. I did say some time ago that if anyone asked a question to me directly and I had taken the trouble to reply, an acknowledgement of that reply would be appreciated. Now the matter seems to have been resurrected again and is getting slightly overcooked.

Your reparation is so much appreciated. Thanks.


'Reparation' = 'the action of making amends for a wrong one has done'.......am I missing something?

Great song David, but who would look after your garden if you flew away 


Mine is already has a  conservation order on it, ie the national collection of dandelions, groundsel & chickweed...
