sweet peas

I some times sow Sweet peas early eg Oct ,you can put 3-4 peas in a pot after soaking them overnight this can help as the shells can be very hard, make sure that the pot is long as they have very long roots and don't like to be disturbed, I didn't have a greenhouse so kept in a spare room, the object of early planting is that when all frosts have passed plant out, that can give an early flowering.

Why not give a hair cut and change the small pot it is in, with new proper soil !! not potting compost, if you are going to lose it let it go in quality.

Must say i have never found them in the house, i notice the holes that the adults make and find the grubs YUK!!! in pot compost eg with Primroses, Heukara, sorry about spelling, you will notice that the potted plant not doing very well , turn upside down to remove plant from pot , no roots and little C shaped grubs look at you and smile, dinner very tastie.
You can buy a liquid that will do the job of dispatching the said grub.
So look out pot plants that are not doing well,
