"I planted them on the 22nd in the evening."

Care needed, Tracy....6 days (presuming that was this month) would indicate that they've been germinated in a little too much warmth.

As I have said previously, germination normally takes between 7 & 21 days.....but 21 is much better than 7 to avoid leggyness....if you get me drift.

Probably a week will be just right, Tracy....but remember, warmth = leggyness.

Remind me again, when did you sow the seed?

As a matter of interest, these are some 'picotee' sweet peas I grew  last year.....from the Eagle's ''Fancy Collection'.
