Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

I should make it clear that the above pic I posted of a sugar & spice SP basket was a googled image, not grown by myself.

I have grown them as good, but just didn't have a pic available.

I would advise caution about growing them. They are very labour intensive i.e. need regular dead-heading, otherwise they soon go to seed and the display is rather dictated by the weather.

is that  just planted in the top or in the sides? it is amazing


Now, this is something for another year. my best results have been from sowing the seed directly into the baskets in autumn and overwintering them as the others. Probably two packets of seed in that basket.

 I was asked recently about the hanging basket sweet pea 'sugar and spice'.....this is quite a good example.

Runny lives in a horizontal world  I think it is the devise she uses as it's too early to blame the sherbert.  

Me too...the doctor says I must try to give it up.

Sorry, forgot to say what a good pic of your amaryllis, Runny  Would have looked even better if you could have rotated it.
