Ok thanks all.

Sweet pea planting soil.

Got to thinking about sowing my peas soon, thing is they say compost only gives about 5 weeks of goodness before its dead. Seeing that they will be in there for months is it best to plant them in something else ?  Maybe a mixture of soil and compost.

I read the other day on one of Monty's reply's to taking buddleia cuttings. He said take a shoot 1-2 ft long and cut it into 6" cuttings, remove all but two leaves from each bit and reduce the leaves  by half.  I will take another look at it tomorrow.
