Wills - perhaps it would be an idea to drape & secure plastic pea/bean netting over the wires. Sweet pea rings are usually used after the tendrils have been removed as in growing using the cordon method.

You're quite welcome, assured you or no one else 'drives me round the bend' on this subject, I think a little repetition is inevitable.

I would suggest to Baza, try to take things a step at a time and not to try to absorb it all in one go i.e. thinking about cutting flowers before you've sown the seed.

 Had lunch here today. The Goats Head in the centre of the village of Abbots Bromley.

Defrost the freezer how about defrosting our gardens David 


Will when the weather picks up, KEF

My logic is that I can bag the contents up, put them in my outhouse (below freezing) while I'm defrosting and they will be less likely to thaw.

My job for today, defrost the freezer......given the forecasted sub zero temperatures, just the time to be doing it, don't you think?

Hi, Charlie

August will be the ideal time for having a good display of sweet peas.

I would sow the seed around mid-March, this could normally be where they are to flower or in a cold greenhouse.

With the importance of the event in mind, maybe the latter would be preferable to minimise loss.

Morning, KEF

I did in fact visit the house, but everything was closed. Having said that, I did have a cuppa courtesy of a flask of hot coffee (+ a dash rum) that I took with me. 

Btw, I'm finding digital b & w far more tricky than in the days of film.
