Perennial sweet peas

Hi Jo

Shell them, best shelled when picked, then they can dry completely.

Were they fully ripe before they were picked? They dry later but need to ripen on the plant.

Scarifing is often helpful for peas, not sure about this particular one. Rough them up a bit and soak in hot water. If they don't swell, not worth sowing

There is no plus to spraying the field margins. That's what our local farmer does. All his fields have a wide orange brown strip round them. Nothing lives and it looks awful.

Why are you so sure it's not a bat?

Your description is exactly what I see every night at the same time during the same months.

Those Taphrina things have formed already Jo and for some reason I rarely get fruit on the bird cherries and it never matures.
