@Squares how far down should I cut them? And should I do it when they are in bud or opened.....I'm too exited for when I come back from holiday not seeing it day to day then just seeing them all opened.....as long as they aren't dead that it 😬🙄🙈 xxx
aww dont be afraid! lovely lot you have there and they look really healthy. they like a sunny spot but roots like to be in the shade and kept moist. give them plenty of support to climb up, they can reach six foot! either trellis or wire mesh or pea sticks, im excited for you :)
@Squares thank you Sarah best place I can think of is against the back fence but I don't think I have enough root space there are five plants in here should I buy a trellis and put the in individual pots?
you could add some mulch, they love well rotted manure did it in the soil, would that work? maybe experiment try with a couple and put the rest in pots, although dont put the pots in full scorching sun they wont like it x
not at all! im not very good at explaining what i mean sorry, i would definitely put the structure in first and separate all the stems tying in as they go, maybe also zig zag the twine between the canes, does that make sense ?!
I would just be a little careful as temps are very low in evenings with a threat of frost which sweet peas hate as do tomatoes , best thing to remember plant out tender annuals no earlier than end of May or when chance of frosts have pasted , hope that helps if plants are already out pop garden fleece over them to protect against frost @hargshirl 💐🌸🌼❄️❄️
@Hut123456789 I wish I seen this last week....I put my beautiful #tomatoes out Saturday and they are all withered up already 😢😢 brought them back in to try and revive but in very sad horrible start to Monday yesterday xxx
