Ive just got Help For Heroes sweet pea, am i too late to plant them in pots to bring them on or should i plant the seed straight into the ground.
Still plenty time to start in pots, if thats what you wish to do.
Probably best in pots as they'll germinate faster than outdoors.
Yeah I would probably get them started in pots, especially with the weather we are having at least you get a little bit of a head start. <span id="sample-permalink">http://www.alisonpike.com/blog/?p=231 if you need any help on how to sow them. <span>
Stand "toilet roll tubes" into a 6 portion modular tray,,gives roots a great start as they like the depth, then plant the whole tube when ready,,Tube should dis-integrate with time also the cardboard helps to retain moisture
I grow them in toilet roll tubes too.
Thanks for ur advice didnt have enough tubes so they r in 4" pots happy gardening
No wish to disagree with anyone, but if it were me I would sow them in-situ at this time of year....it is May in just over a week, after all!
