Hi Carly,I am also new to forums , I guess we should keep to sweet peas .I think they might be a challenge to me, our last frost date is april 15. I plan to pot them up in feb in the garage.I hope this is not too early.Thanks Debra

Hi Carly, I dont have any secret it must be where I planted them ,againt the house blocked from wind by large grasses ,maybe I created a micro climate they like.If I did ,that was truly an accident. Debra

Hi all, I will treat them mean,and .let you know how it goes.The sweet pea I order was royal wedding it is white , a safe color or colour as you say.They look soooooooo beautiful on the packet .I think I will try some potted in newspaper.I am starting them in an unheated garage under grow lights, then off to a cold frame in march,then into the garden as for morning glories, they grow like weeds here.          Debra

Hi, I am going to try my hand at sweet peas.I am going to start them in toilet rolls, under grow lights and then harden off for out doors .Does anyone know if they will grow well in a large pot with a trellis ? David you are correct ,the weather hear is slightly different ,I thought it was the same as u.k because I am on an Island and have water on both sides.Its  colder here in winter and warmer in summer .I am not offended, I love to get opinions from people who have the know how ,and hope my gardens could look as lovely and lush as those in the u.k .It is not as popular here .Thanks Debra

Hi ,I am on long island n.y ,I am zone7. Do you think that I can start poppys and sweet peas in toilet rolls and plant out  at the same time . I am going to start them now indoors, then around march put in a cold frame ,then into the garden as it warms up a bit.I do not know how cold tolerant they are . I have not tried these yet. They say poppys do not like rich soil, but I am not sure about this, should I put compost in the soil anyway,could it hurt.                                 Thanks Debra
