    peasticks for sweat peas to grow up

    I went on my annual trip on Monday to collect peasticks from the cobnut farm that keeps their prunings for me. I get to drive through deepest Kent and spend time in countryside straight out of ‘Darling Buds of May.’ It was a particularly beautiful day– hot, sunny and everything laden with blossom and fresh green foliage – and the peasticks make all the difference to the garden. Back home, I set to putting in plant supports and planting the sweetpeas around the twig wigwam. All very satisfactory!
