Lathyrus 'Clementine Kiss'

Plant details

Lathyrus odoratus 'Clementine Kiss' is a fantastic sweet pea, bearing unusual apricot-orange blooms with a delicate fragrance. It’s perfect for training up an obelisk or trellis in the garden, or even in a pot on the patio, and makes a lovely cut flower.

For best results, grow Lathyrus odoratus 'Clementine Kiss' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Feed fortnightly with a high-potash fertiliser, and deadhead regularly to prolong flowering.

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?
