In this practical video, David Hurrion shows you two different methods to ensure sweet peas climb up their supports.

First, the low-maintenance method of providing twiggy branches for the tendrils to cling onto. Then he demonstrates the cordon method, which involves removing the tendrils and tying in the stem to a cane, which ensures the flower stalks stay long and straight, and don’t get bent and tangled by clinging tendrils. Watch now to find out how it’s done.
