Sara, I've not grown this one, but from the information here  it looks as if it is perfectly suitable for growing in a container.

I hope that's helpful

My concern would be regarding the weedkiller part of the treatment - I've no idea how long it remains active - it might be an idea to try sowing some cheapish seeds - radish, lettuce etc and see what happens. 

Do you still have the packet the treatment came in?  Does it have contact details for the manufacturer's customer service dept?  I think I'd contact them and see what they advise.

That is so pretty and so colourful Sweetpea - give yourself a hearty pat on the back 

Make sure you've got a seat up at the allotment - you'll need it

Sometimes allotment holders club together to get a trailer-load of manure delivered from a farm - it might be worthwhile asking if that sort of thing goes on

Good idea Fg - as well as sweet peas, our GC has thunbergia and Morning Glories ready to plant out 

Too late for tomatoes

Yes, too late for seed, but you can pick up some plants from a GC - do a bit of research on the varieties they offer and choose some that you'll enjoy eating.
