Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 17/07/2015 at 21:57

Hi, again Baz

Yes, avoid letting your sweet peas set seed pods at all costs, as this will shorten the flowering period by some margin. Of course, this doesn't just apply to sweet peas, other flowers will be encouraged to flower longer if dead-headed regularly.

From the plants perspective, as soon at it has produced seed they assume their job is done.

Hi, Ma

Many thanks for that useful information, just what I was looking for....I'll print it off and take it with me. I think there may be some tired legs tomorrow night.

Hope you're keeping well.

I'm planning a visit tomorrow and I would be grateful for any tips on where to go what to camera will be near at hand and I plan is to stay for about 3 hours.

I'll be arriving by train and will have to depend on buses or taxis. 

Ta in anticipation. xx

My own google reveals:

'The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 states that it is an offence to kill any bird - including pigeons - unless a licence is held, but section one allows exemption if an organisation or individual complies with general licence regulations.'
