Looking good Baz, it's amazing how much things grow in a short space of time

marigold / sweet pea seeds

Hello, I would have thought you would ok with the marigolds, as I think they are annuals. I've sowed a few annuals in the last couple of weeks.  I sowed my sweetpeas about a month ago which was late for me. They are about 2 inches stall and I haven't pinched out the leaves yet. I think if you could do them now, you'll get later blooms and maybe for not so long.

You can pick up small sweetpeas really cheap, but if you wanted to grow your own I would sow them

Hi nut, yes they were, can't remember now which ones you had. I know that I collected from some pinks and some dark reds. I gave away a lot of the bigger plants that I grew, but the ones I have will flower this year, will collect the seed again.

When I've had them in previous gardens, sometimes they did grow little off shoots so the plant kept on going for a few years, sometimes they can self seed as well.The seeds are easy to collect and germinate really quickly.

I had some nice plants last year so collected the seeds and the new plants will be flowering soon. I picked what I thought was the nicest colour so will be interesting to see if they flower the same. I really like sweet williams

Brilliant, bet it tasted good. I've not done a lot of veg but it's great growing your own food

What a lovely clump, you will get a good show of them. I've never split them but can't see why not with a clump this size
