Just read page 23: Fab, Thank you. I've got so many sweet peas (brag, brag) of different colours etc that I'm going to try both ways. Last year I had dreadfully short blooms AND they were covered in greenfly BUT they has an unusual red marbled effect and their perfume was gorgeous. I cut them for our September village show, shook the greenfly off, plonked them in a pewter teapot and went to the show. [I was rather ashamed of them in comparison to a really wonderful grower whose stems were long and straight and whose flowers were pale blue.]
I won first prize! My husband must have bribed the judges!! The note from the judge commended the smell and marble look. Funny old world.
