If it wasn't a systemic spray such as glyphosate you'll probably be okay.

JUST FOR MIKE

I know how you feel, Mike.....had a spot of bother myself last year and it pained me to see nature trying to reclaim my lovely garden. The experience however did cause me to think of such things as 'should I be growing fruit 'n veg on this scale'?

I think next year there will be some downsizing.

Garden tattoos? Or generally cool and interesting tattoos?

I've never given them much thought really....cept to know they're not for me personally. As it happens my son & daughter don't seem to have the inclination either.....although I have to admit, I did dread my son turning up with a safety-pin through his nose in the punk era. My grandson (21) and granddaughter (18) also remain untatted.

Given the permanency of the things I do wonder why youngsters would have the names of their girlfriend/boyfriend etched on their necks at a very early stage in their relationship.

I too think SweetPea's look nice.

An excellent choice, scroggin and I hope they will do well for you. Probably my favourite from that collection would be 'Julie Ann' , bred by Eagle themselves and does really well on the show bench.

Photoshop or no Photoshop, I still think you are beautiful, SweetPea.

Hi, Darren....we have a dedicated sweet pea thread on the forum where I tend to look out for queries such as yours.  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/growing-sweet-peas/6143-44.html

However, I would just say that I think the curled leaves of your sweet peas is probably due to fluctuating  temperatures, so there isn't much you can do about it. They look very healthy otherwise and I'm sure they will soon outgrow the problem.
