Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 03/01/2015 at 19:43

Hello everybody , reading this reminded me that last year for the first time I planted sweet peas in toilet tubes in the green house and then planted them in large boxes at the allotment - disaster - they did not grow much , in fact pathetic !

Normally I just put the seeds in the ground and they grow well , so David K , I think you are right be mean with them

Hello Roy , although I grow potatoes at the Allottment , I also have 2 potatoes sacks that I grow at home using bought compost which produces nice clean and even sized spuds not very big but ideal for the local Village show . Start them off in a cold greenhouse , then outside , then depending on the weather back in the G/H

Talking spuds , in AC last night they mentioned putting shredded newspaper in trench , anybody out there tried that ?
