Sorry to hear this, Jean.
The truth is you probably haven't done anything wrong. The weather this year has been everything sweet peas don't like, so just hope for a better year next year.
Even professional growers like my friend Derek Heathcote (owner of Eagle Sweet Peas) has had to withdraw his trade stands from several of the main shows this year because of the lack of blooms to exhibit.....this is the first time I can recall that happening.
Although he exhibited and won a gold medal at Chelsea, he had to call on the help of his friends who were growing his seed, to help with providing flowers....and that's pretty extreme.
