Sorry, Lyn....just re-read my earlier post and understand what you mean.

By 'late spencer' I meant more recent introductions of Spencer varieties.

David is Late Spencer the strain of seeds

 

Not exactly sure what your question is, Lyn.

Spencer sweet peas were developed by gardeners (many years ago)  at Althorp House. Yes, the ancestral home of the late Princess Di.

I need hugs too....

Lovely pics. I didn't bother with SPs this year, but now wish I had!

 

Hello, Annie....hope your enjoying the forum and pleased you like SP pics.

Personally, I think they are the finest cut flower you can grow.

 Old fashioned sweet peas usually have 2 or 3 flowers per stem, occasionally 4. Late Spencer’s have 3 to 5…..while  5 or 6  would be preferable for exhibition, as above.

The flowers should face forward and cover the stem.

Perhaps I have my cynical head on too...and given the widespread corruption in football, why not?

I like him, he's a genius...but most definitely not on this occasion.

Hugs, Lily. xx

PS. OL, yes, but my point is that I can't quite understand why he should have been awarded 'player of the tournament'  on this occasion.

Lionel Messi...awarded best player of the World Cup Championship?

I sure admire the guy, but surely he didn't show much enthusiasm and let himself & his country down.

"David, I used to raise money for a charity with my Vic sponge, I used to make them and people would donate,mi raised about £500 altogether and have been told they are very good (not my words someone else's)."

If only I were so modest! ....I would say that it helps that I make my own raspberry jam from my own grown raspberries.

Last year I came first with my tomatoes in the redcurrant class.
