White/cream sweet peas are often yellowy looking in bud as are many of the colours. Do you mean you bought seed of the wild one from Canada SP? I wouldn't have though Homebase would stock those 

These are some of my 'Cathy' ones form last year - you can see the greeny yellow buds

I think LoganB put membrane or something at the back.  I think I'd use marine ply to make it more substantial  if you wanted it long term. Heavy plastic would probably do the job reasonably well too. I htink she may have gone into the construction on her original thread. Perhaps she'll take a look later

Caltha palustris (marsh marigold) is another one that would fit in well Percy. Great pond/bog plant and pretty much evergreen
