David, hope you don't mind me asking, how long have you been growing and exhibiting sweet peas.
Hi, Brumbull...my first show entry was in our local village show in the mid sixties. My first NSPS (National Sweet Pea Society) entry was in the late sixties....I then exhibited regularly for about another 25 years.
I seldom show nationally anymore, but show and judge at a local level.
My biggest achievement…..a lady from another forum wanted to grow sweet peas for her daughter’s sweet pea themed wedding (bouquets, church & reception bedecked with them)….you get the idea.
I took her though the process from Sept to June and (to cut a long story short) it was an outstanding success….she even sent me wedding photos.
PS. The bride has just had her first baby.
