Growing them by the cordon method (no need top bother yourself with that at the mo) you do remove all tendrils and compensate by tying them in by hand.

Yours need to retain some tendrils to enable them to climb, so best remove those in the vicinity & about to entwine your flower stems.

 My first EagLe Sweet Pea flower, I think it's Banty.

 

Now that's class! Just look at the long, strong stem on the left.

I understand...... just being mischievous again.

Just switched on the vacuum cleaner.... dead as a do-do,  checked the fuse, nothing wrong there....shall I be happy or sad?

Btw, I'm not 90 either.

OL - Trying to work out if I'm been complimented or not.

"I haven't got big enough supports and haven't snipped the tendrils but I have been cutting them A LOT and every morning I seem to get a load more".

Btw, those should smell really nice, as the purples verging into blues usually are the most scented.

Thanks guys. David sorry for being so "green" which parts are the tendrils 

 

No prob..they are those little thin spidery bits they use to climb.

Hello, Shaun ......welcome to the forum.

I would say they look pretty good....well done!

Just a couple of tips, I think they may outgrow their supports soon, so may need something a little higher....and you may wish to snip off some of those tendrils to prevent them distorting the flower stems.

I need hugs too....

No worries, phillippa.....some get it, others don't.

It hasn't been a brilliant World Cup, but for me the drumming by Germany of the host nation (Brazil) was a breath-taking display of the artistry 'beautiful game'.  

I need hugs too....

Thanks, KEF...I hadn't heard until you said, although it seemed inevitable.

Liverpool FC is better than that and although I will remember his 'genius' fondly, the £75m will be more important for the clubs future.
