White sweet pea leaves

paddympaddym Posts: 10
Newbie gardener back again. Autumn-sown sweetpeas are out in the open (currently elevated in pots on a table). Last few days some leaves are showing white streaks or patches. See pics. I have around 28 plants and this is on around a quarter of them. All normal or do I need to alter their care? They had a feed on Sunday and I’m watering most days - we’ve also had a fair bit of rain. Thanks in advance!

    I'd say they've been nipped by frost.
    Whilst sweet peas are very hardy, you have baby plants that aren't quite toughened-up enough yet.
    Can you keep them somewhere sunny but sheltered?
    As soon as this unusually cold spell is over they'll be fine outside
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
