Lathyrus, known as sweet peas grow as climbers, low spreading plants or as shrubs. Given stakes or wires to attach to, climbers support themselves, using tendrils to wrap around as they grow. Non-climbing perennials tolerate partial shade, while all others require a sunny position to grow well. For best results, grow in moist but well drained soil. Lathyrus 'Clementine Kiss' produces apricot coloured, scented blooms.

I have planted sweet peas, three to a pot, as demonstrated by Monty Don.
They are sprouting happily.
Do I need to keep the three plants apart - stop entwining.
In spring will I have to split them and plant separately or will I have to plant them in groups of three? (I would rather split them to cover a longer bit of wall)
How would you recommend supporting them in their pots over the winter?
