    October sown Sweet Peas

    The early October sowing of sweet peas is coming along nicely.  I’ve followed Sarah Ravens advice and sown 2 plants to a pot so that they develop a really strong root system.  I’ve decided to experiment with pinching out some plants and leaving others. Sweet pea specialist Roger Parsons says side shoots will develop naturally and pinching out is unnecessary.  On the other hand the plants that Sarah Raven sends out are the bushiest sweet pea plants I’ve ever seen and the sweet peas in her garden always look magnificent.
