"I planted them on the 22nd in the evening."

Care needed, Tracy....6 days (presuming that was this month) would indicate that they've been germinated in a little too much warmth.

As I have said previously, germination normally takes between 7 & 21 days.....but 21 is much better than 7 to avoid leggyness....if you get me drift.

Probably a week will be just right, Tracy....but remember, warmth = leggyness.

Remind me again, when did you sow the seed?

As a matter of interest, these are some 'picotee' sweet peas I grew  last year.....from the Eagle's ''Fancy Collection'.

I've just planted-up two island beds of Golden Jubilee....they should look great later in the year.

 That's OK David. Could depend on soil or what you feed it on, even the light quality when the photo was taken.


 Very kind of you, Lizzie, though I'm still slightly puzzled. I bought my Pilgrim directly from the David Austin nursery during a visit and the picture on the pot was exactly as in my pic i.e. large, double, buttercup yellow blooms. Alas, other pics show it just like yours.
