As the previous thread on this subject is getting rather bulky & difficult to follow, I’m starting this new one as a replacement.
Mid to late October is the time when most sweet pea growers make their autumn sowings.
You’ll be needing the seed of your choice, seed compost (I prefer seed compost, rather than multi-purpose) as it contains less nutrients, deep pots such as root-trainers, grow-tubes etc.
Also a cold-frame or other suitable protection. But remember sweet peas are extremely hardy and will cope with temps of -10c happily.
Btw, I've asked Daniel to close the previous thread.
