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 🙈

comment
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?

comment
kez001uk

@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 😋

My mum gave me some seeds from hers last year, only one germinated but at least I’ve got one!! 😍😍

@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 🤞🏻

I don’t know but it’s so unfair 🤦‍♀️@kez001uk

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.

comment
kez001uk

@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 😁🐝
