Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 12/03/2015 at 18:54

Pottering girl this is the first time I have sown autumn ones just sow spring ones normally and I had lots of help from David K

I thought I would put them next to the spring ones to cover a fence area with gridded wire on

David K I have also sown sweet peas for a train station where I volunteer - what do you think will be the best thing to grow them up as some people can be pain and pull at things so got to think of health and safety issues

I sowed my new batch of sweet peas yesterday to go with the autumn ones - so I can have massive amount of them for cutting and bring indoors

Hello all

Fruitcake I nearly went on here late yesterday but then the internet played up and was not letting us on any site

Home garden plot so use loo in house - but know what you mean, do you have a mini hover like dyson that you could use to suck all the spiders away? or use a dusting bush clear them out, there is a loo at the allotment where I will be going  - but bucket I think best bet as you do need to keep hydrated - may be you need a camping loo tent Google it they are not that expensive and nicer to go in than a spider shed

Ginagibbs good use of the poly tunnel, nice to sow seeds  

I want to prick out my celery and cauliflower today and sow some seeds, I am trying this year planting by the moon 

Yesterday I managed to clear up the area - piled plants in a different space, so I have room for the 5 tier green house

Then later put it together and it is now up with bricks on bottom shelf, then sowed my sweet peas indoors

Left empty over night, today I will put some seedlings in,  that is one up the other one will wait a few weeks for this one to fill up first then go next door

GWRS welcome back, I guess seed sowing and prep for you now

Roy how is your plot doing?  you not been on here for a bit

Stagbeetle  when I get the greenhouse up this week after a bit of an area clearing, seedlings will be going in, I would say fine for seedlings to go in it as long as you keep it zipped up - they will take a little longer to germinate as not as warm as indoors - unless they have already  I normally put up in March
