Beautiful.. a few of mine survived so far the pest but no flowers as of yet... pinching them out while young did wonders this year for their growth as well. Wish they would flower soon.

Is it me, or does look paler than last year? 🤔

@cyndi I never remember to pinch them out 😜 glad some of yours are doing well and hope they’ll flower soon 🤞🏻

@jeatacake I thought so too! Just took a look back and they were much pinker. There are 3 plants in the one pot though so perhaps this is one that didn’t flower last year 🤔

Ah yes, that could explain it. Time will tell 👍

@jeatacake I cut them to soil level in autumn but they’ve just gone crazy recently. 3 plants have multiplied into a hedge 🤣 I bet yours are making a climb for it! 😂

If not now, they soon will be. Rampant things they are! 😯

@jeatacake there are worse things to run rampant but I expect in the ground it’s a little less easy to contain 🙈

jeatacake

They don't tend to spread but grow rapidly & will smother anything nearby, almost like a Russian vine if you've ever seen one of those in action!

@jeatacake they will cling to anything 😂 not even heard of a Russian vine but will go google it 😛

Whatever you do don't get one! They are ruthless! 😟

These look interesting. I saw then on someone else's postings and they're very pretty when they bloom😊

@gjones they’re gorgeous. The whole one side of my greenhouse is covered in the flowers 💕 scroll across to see 😁

They really are pretty. Do you have several pots of them?

@gjones just the one pot with 3 plants in. They seem to do much better for me than annual ones 🙈

@jeatacake matching peas 😁 these I decided to grow up the front of the greenhouse. They’re now going over the roof 😂 wish they were scented though 😊looking forward to seeing yours

I have a dark pink one too & unfortunately, neither are scented. It seems only the annual ones are 😏

@jeatacake the flowers seem a bit longer lasting than the annual ones though. Guess there has to be a trade-off 😐

Yes, that is very true. We can't have everything, much as we'd like to! 🤨

@ublaszko what varieties have you got?

comment
ublaszko

I had two very scented ones, one with rich colours and another with pastels, but the pastel seedlings were weak and I run out of space in the garden so I only kept the rich ones.

@ublaszko shame about the pastels but at least the others were ok 😁 looking forward to seeing them 😋

@pelly I didn’t get many to germinate either 🤔 must be a little more fickle that annual sweet peas 😂 hopefully we will both get flowers this year 🤞🏻

That looks like the work of leaf cutter bees 🤔 Shouldn't harm the plant, apart from its appearance! 😒

@suerichards I hadn’t noticed until today but it’s munched about 8 of them like this 😢

@jeatacake well it’s a good thing I like bees or I’d be reaching for bug spray 😂 thank ya 😊

comment
gjones

Oh my! Sorry but I had to giggle when I saw this plant. I guess the bees thought it should have a toothed leaf😄😄 The cuttings will harm your plant in appearance only.

@gjones I’ll be honest, I thought it was supposed to look like this at first 🤣🤣🤣😳 I quite like the scalloped edges 😋 but if it’s not going to harm the plant I don’t mind feeding the bees 😁🐝
