Sweet Pea July 26, 2012Categories Uncategorizedannuals, flowers, garden, gardening, greenhouse, photography8 Comments on Sweet Pea I have never had luck growing sweet peas. This year I tried just one more time. Potted into a large clay pot, they have been growing, and growing… And today–the first blossom.

I’ve never had any luck either…does it smell heavenly?
YES! and now I want more!!!
I had 3 huge wigwams of sweet peas last year. I had so many flowers I was giving them away. This year has been a disaster for them though with all the rain. Some plants are starting to pick up now as the temperatures have risen and the sun has come out. So I at least have enough for a vase by my bed.
I spoke to soon….no more flowers…yet!
Result!! I picked some yesterday the scent is filling the kitchen as I type this – so sweet and pungent. But I do like to leave a few on the vine as they look so pretty twining and twirling around canes and string. Lovely 🙂
Oh how I wish I had enough for a vase! But one is better than I have done in past years! And it took a pretty picture!
How very lovely…maybe a pot is the way to go.
It’s the most luck I have had in recent years. The aphids got to them last year. 🙂
