Glad to see there are still a few of us who use 'Natures Own' to rear our seeds.

Sweet peas have a long tap root that doesn't like disturbance, you would do better to sow them in root trainers, or toilet roll tubes for cheapness,  only one to a pot, you can then plant them out without disturbing the long roots. They don't need heat they are very hardy, can be sown in Autumn, not that I do.  You could sow three to a flower pot and plant the whole lot out together.

if you sow in a seed tray you are going to have to pot on, so be very careful. They need pinching out, so you get a bushy plant rather than a leggy one.

They were my seeds, hardy plants but sow the seeds in Spring. You can take cuttings thereafter in late summer. Mine are still flowering.
