Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 23/04/2014 at 16:25

Hello, Emma. I have a fair grasp of growing sweet peas here in the UK, but in the absence of any knowledge of your climate, I'm not sure what advice to offer.

I do have a friend who emigrated to Cyprus a couple of years ago......despite her best efforts, she hasn't managed to grow them successfully.

David - its the environment you work in and the people you work with that makes the difference to any job.  Are your work mates a good lot?


Riff-raff of the sort you would never believe!

Why the sad face David, because you don't enjoy it or because it's unskilled?  Nothing at all wrong with that as long as you are happy in your work 

Now I'm worried.....people are starting to take me serious!  eek smiley

Words? Oh yes, some can come very close to home. Matt Munro's 'Walk away' is very poignant for moi.

Rosemummy...they'll be fine, just tie them in then they've made enough growth to be able to do so.

You've been tending the needs of babies too long!

Hello, Isla...welcome to the forum. This thread is mostly intended for those growing sweet pea flowers.

Not to worry, I'll see if I can help. 

Have been subjected to cold winds? This will have this affect, also if they have been over-watered..... especially when the nights are cold.

Like those, KEF...(haven't seem them before, although I do have this memory) Quite the expert at taking close-ups now, aren't we?

Where are YOU?

Staffordshire on the edges of Cannock Chase......missionaries haven't arrived yet!   

They are still busy here David.


Hello. KEF....haven't heard from you for a while, perhaps because Camera Corner has lost some of its impetus.
