Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 23/03/2014 at 18:37
I have sown my first sweet peas today, gwendoline and Cathy. I expected more seeds in the packets, 16 & 21. The plan was to sow some outside and the rest in the GH. I now need to get more packets for the indoor ones! Fingers crossed they will turn out ok.

Sweetpea93 its great to 'meet' an enthusiastic young gardener ( oh to be 21 again!) anything to encourage you that you learn from or just enjoy is brilliant. The world of horticulture is crying out for new people. We will also learn from you and your ideas and outlook. You will one day be one of our experts, I wish I had been so willing to learn all those years ago. Ps im only going on about being 'young' because most of us on here are the grand old age of 27! Hahum! Hope you enjoy the forum.

'They' say talking to plants is beneficial, maybe asking to remove the growing tip from my seedlings will ensure more beautiful flowers?

It seems it is considered good manners to ask ALL trees permission before cutting them! The 's' came from whatever we were about to hack at the time.
