Flowers in the rain....absolutely no need to soak or chip sweet pea seed. For pots & baskets I would wait until March to sow them.

Plant pauper....Prince of Orange (more like salmon to be precise) will be no more difficult to grow than any other. It has smaller than usual flowers, but more than makes up for having many more and is highly scented.

Yes will okay grown on an obelisk.

Myself, I start them off in deep pots anytime during the next couple of weeks.

Having said that, it perfectly possible to sow the seed directly, where they are to flower, in the autumn....doing this does have its downside as the young shoots are vulnerable to slugs & birds.

You're very kind, Lilly, though I'm a little disappointed it was out of focus a tad on enlargement......me thinks the file size may have been too big.

 Thinking about it, they look quite similar to these 'Dot Com' That I've grown for several years.
