I hadn’t been up to the plot for a week – the weather and revision had got the better of me over the weekend, so it was with determined effort that I went up last night.
Success – more sweet peas!!!!!
This crop look a little stronger so hoping for great things there
Failure – munched peas seedlings 😦
So onwards and upwards as they say – to make up for the munched a crop – planted these mangetout.
I picked up 12 seedlings at the garden centre for a bargain £2.
Courgettes now in the ground – fingers crossed that they take.
Often at home I suffer from powdery mildew so hoping that in the open they fare a bit better.
For several years I have struggled to grow sweet peas … the seeds will germinate and seedlings grow healthy and strong and then I plant them out and never see a bloom!
I had given up, thinking that I was just rubbish and would look enviously at wigwams of plentiful blooms in other peoples gardens.
This year I was given some unwanted seedlings so planted them up and expected nothing … and this one appeared (and there are more to come!!!)
They are not the strongest plants I have seen but they are producing flowers – so this summer I will have the scent of sweet peas at home 🙂
