Teepee sweet peas just now - still a way to go.



The others on the line are flowering just a few but very petite and rather frail looking, must be the weather.

Lai Very Happy

Those look really healthy though Lai, so I have no doubt that they will bloom spectacularly flower  flower 
it's lovely to see them and i'm looking forward to seeing them in flower.

mmmmmmmmmmm they do, it's one of the best things about them Doogs, a really lovely fresh summery scent to them.

Thanks for the kind words as I know I am about 6 weeks behind Littlewid and 3 weeks behind WS Rolling Eyes

Doogs, Sweet Peas are the best smelling flowers ever. Once you have smelt them you will want to grow them next year for your home. flower flower flower

Mmmm very intriguing, I'll have to ask my mum where I can go to smell them, she'll know Wink  flower 

As for growing them myself, gardening is definitely not one of my strongest points No Embarassed

These are LW's seeds that she sent us, they were planted very late weeks after the other plants, because of the cold weather. Mrs S decided to try them in a bascket to see if they will trail, so hopefully we will gat a late show. Sorry about the washing line, but me smalls were drying  

Mrs S's  Sweet Peas today

We already have seed pods forming which seems very quick as they havent been flowering that long

http://i73.servimg.c  Mrs - lovely sweet peas and what a good idea to try them trailing. I wonder if this weird English summer has affected them WS as it does seem early to be forming seed pods.

Oh wow WS my seeds are doing really well and I think next year I will try putting them in a basket, thats a really good idea of Mrs S' s, she is a clever lady cheers 

Your peas are doing well too. Mine have almost finished which is not surprising as they flowered so early and mine have been sprouting pods for a while now, so I will save the seeds again and then mix them with some new seeds that I have. I do think the weather has caused them to grow early and finish early, saying that though, the ones round the corner in a ladys front garden are doing amazingly well but flowered long after mine.
