I planted Everlasting Sweetpeas early March which are still sitting on my indoor windowsill. They are doing well and are about 6/8" tall but spindley. Should I pinch the tops and if so how? They each have around 5 lots of 2 leaves. Any help gladly appreciated!
Ok Verdun, here goes, never done this before and it feels sooo wrong! Will this make them bush out?
It'll be fine, don't worry! And yes, they should bush out a little after their trim, especially now the warmer weather SEEMS to be finally upon us. I have literally just planted seeds of peas, french beans and sweet peas; having moved house over Easter I was a little scared of tiny seedlings getting lost in transit. Fingers crossed for yours x
I wonder if someone could help me, I sowed my Everlasting sweetpeas 2 years ago and they only flowered in the second year, what did I do wrong?
The main thing to consider with sweet peas is that they are cool-season annuals.
Sorry I did not explain myself clearly, they grew quite happily but never flowered until the second year. I seem to have this problem quite a lot and wondered if it was common enough for someone to have a list. Sadly cold and wet summers I cannot control even in sunny Cornwall.
Stephen I hope that these are perennials
Well they're all done and sitting pretty, after their trim on the windowsill. When's the best time to put them in the ground. I live in Mid Wales if that helps?
