Sweet pea heads dropping off

Sweet pea heads dropping off

Don't know what to suggest 

It's not something I've encountered before. Have you grown them successfully in the same places before? I wonder if there's not enough nutrition for them.

Can I grow a Clematis alongside a Virginia Creeper?

I'd keep the VC for the wall and have the Clematis elsewhere. The autumn colour on a wall is beautiful.

Are they in the ground or in pots? I only ask because in pots they might be congested if you have a lot of them, and therefore they could be  short of food and water, and in the ground it could be slug/snail damage. Regular picking usually means more flowers, not less. 

DavidK is the SP expert but I don't know if he's around today.

Didn't realise you were a Scot Lavande 

LH - I used to travel a lot to various shows all round the country. Our Scottish accents were often taken for Irish...not really sure why!

That's a great bargain Tray. They didn't have any clematis that I wanted last time I was there. EV's a lovely clematis and flowers like mad.

easy plant id

Percy, I think you can divide those if they're too big, as long as you get a decent root on the clump.  Verdun will know the best time to do it. They do get quite big. 

Yet another ID required please?!
