Hi Tanty, they are very leggy, probably the result of too much warmth and fading light.
Sweet peas have long long roots so best to plant them in deeper containers. I'm trying my hand at sowing them in the autumn for the first time. I've sown mine in largish pots and they are in my cold frames at the moment.......no sign yet.
I'm a sucker for giving any seed that's germinated a chance, I would repot them into deep pots and bury their leggy stems as much as you can.......it doesn't matter if you bend the stem to get it in the pot ( just don't snap it). They will do so much better outside.
I have a few home made coldframes that are like the mini greenhouses but a lot more sturdier, I do all my growing in them.
I do start off seeds indoors on the windowsills but they always need somewhere to grow on. If these ones don't make it, don't give up, like others have said you can try again in the spring
