Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 12/07/2014 at 10:23

The really strong winds and heavy rain we've had over the last few days have bashed my sweet peas about a bit   There's lots more flowers to cut, but I think I may have seen the last of the long straight stems for a bit

I needed something to give height in the middle of that border, and I'd grown Morning Glories (mixed) for some pots for the terrace, so they were the perfect temporary filler for that spot

Good morning KEF 

I've got a BBQ lunch to go to - a young person I used to work with has grown up and now lives with support in a complex of residential bungalows - she's kept in touch with me and they're having an open day - her family can't make it as her twin sister has had a baby in the last few days, so I've been asked to go along for a couple of hours 

Hope the weather picks up
