Also read on here you have to cut the flowers off so they don't go to seed ,When do you start to do this?

 

Don't think I ever said that, but it is a fact that seed pods should be removed asap. The idea is to cut the flowers regularly before they go to seed in the first place.

They look mint gardengirl thats the look i'm going for thankyou.

Baza, I would just say that sweet peas are just cut flowers and not a display feature i.e. they must me cut regularly otherwise they will cease to flower & prematurely go to seed.

David K really like your second vase where did you get that from?

 

Can't really say, Gg......my daughter bought it for me years ago. It may be worth mentioning that SPs look quite good in a mug, especially when the stems are short.

Gardengirl's is a better example than mine ( don't often photograph them whilst growing) but imagine these are growing up 8ft canes.

 I have loads, Baz..but I suppose this (although only a small vase) is fairly typical.

Please feel free to tinker with the photo. Just puzzled how you can alter a photo on someone's post.

 

 I was hoping to lose the water butt, but wasn't able to without spoiling your pic.
