The secret of doing them in pots is to have other things complementing them GD. The soil and weather here can be inhospitable for sweet peas, so pots ensure a better result for me.
I often group them with other pots, or with seating etc. This was from a couple of years ago, before I'd done the back lawn. They were yet to start flowering properly, but they were all white. I usually grow Cupani (purple) which are always reliable. Smaller than many of the others but highly scented. Having a few pots of other colour as well means you can move stuff around according to what's in flower through the changing season.
EV is very prolific - hard to beat for coverage too. That one is getting moved though. It'll get the chop in late winter, if not before!
