@tina that's how I am with clematis. This year has been my worst year in 5 years of growing sweet peas.

Aah, yes I saw @GardeningNicW86 's post last night. I seem to get limited success out of an autumn sowing- just can't keep the slugs off them.

Thanx @Keely @DickieLeysh most sowing done in October are being done indoors & being over wintered. Some are experimenting with both :)

@GardeningNicW86 In the past I've tried a cold frame which didn't do so well. If I can find some room indoors amongst my pelargoniums I'll see how they do. Will be good to have a succession of sweet peas.
