For anyone yet to order their SP seed for next year, I can recommend:

'Orange Crush' - very bright flowers

'Midnight' - deep maroon

'Gwendoline' - light centre with pink edges

'Oxford Blue' - very strongly scented, navy blue

'Castle of Mey' - creamy white, frilly blooms

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.
