Some of the plants are now quite bushy, which is apparently what I should be trying to achieve.
The theory is that if a Sweet Pea plant has a number of shorter, sturdier stems (as opposed to one tall thin one), it will produce more flowers. I'm looking forward to that!
I have about 36 plants I think, so by rights I should be inundated with flowers. I just need to provide them with the right growing-space. I'm still contemplating how to do this...
|This is the first, smaller, batch. The second batch has 20 plants.|
For the record, my Sweet Peas are "Fragrantissima" (sowed 1 Dec) and "Spencer Mixed" (sowed 12 Jan).
Who else has Sweet Peas on the go at present?
