    Hi Marion, is it to early to sow sweet pea seeds in doors?, last year we had a sudden frost in early spring and they didn't survive image

    Why not sow a few now and the rest later.  Sowing early if we have mild weather means lanky weak growth which can succumb to a cold snap as you found out last year.  I am a great believer of not putting all your eggs in the same basket.

    Thanks Marion sounds like a good idea, right now it's very cold here, icy pavements, rain and snow ? But next week the temperature is going upto 11c crazy, I'm glad coz it's my mums birthday on Tuesday image

    I watched it, Flumpy.  We need more gardening programmes in the winter...
