I didn't grow sweet peas last year and missed them. I like to grow them in one colour and by mid summer I have a wigwam of white flowers and another of red. Always go for scented too.
As an experiment I compared autumn with spring sown sweet peas for a few years and I concluded early spring sown were best. They grew without any check in growth. Autumn sown seemed to produce more foliage too...??
I always pinch back shoots.....does anyone find this makes a real difference though?
Far from an expert on sweet peas....know nothing of varieties, for example.....but usually germination is rapid without any form of chitting, etc.
What do you all think are the best scented varieties?
