Good afternoon, I am a new member. The first post I see is my passion. I have been growing sweet peas for 35 years. I nearly didn't do them this year as last year was a disaster but I decided to do container pots. I have never had so many flowers, almost six full bowls to date. They are hungrier in pots and I give a liquid feed once a week and nip off most of the tendrils. So glad I didn't give up, and yes the bottom of the plants don't look great. I cover them with moss. It is still the best scent ever!

Welcome LP...my kind of person...fancy a job?  you can tell all these lovely people how it's done.

PS.  Unless you are sufficiently concerned about the bleeding to contact the hospital, it helps to hold your nose for a while...upright not leaning back.

"David,did you get much residual bleeding after your op?"

Just a little residual bleeding for a few hours after the packing had been removed, then it just turns to nothing more than a weak, bloody water.

Hope she wasn't too distressed by the packing removal sensation.

Best wishes Beth....I'd be ashamed, I had 20 removed!

That's it!!!  That's what it is, I found an empty Lavatera packet the other day and couldn't remember when I'd sown it........oops  Doesn't look much like the picture on the packet though.

Sorry for my mistake guys and thank you for correcting me, at least I know now 

Sorite.....which day are you at Southport, Tracey?

Beautiful !  Is it a special pot one?  Great to have flowers all the way down

Not really, chicky.....re 'flowers all the way down', fraid I cheat a little I carefully detach/untangle flower stems from the top & relocate & train them lower downwards.
