First Sweetpeas

I try to have sweetpeas in the garden every year and this year is no different. These are the first this year and are in the little toilet down stairs and their perfume is fantastic. Hopefully there will be more to come.

I didn't realize the blooms were so large. Nice display.

Lovely. Sweet Peas are such lovely flowers & the perfume is one of the best.

They are SO pretty and I am pleased you have not had to do without them this year.
Ours are an utter failure!

I wish I could smell them Julia ,mine failed miserably this year and I do love the scent ...

I have to confess I have always bought plug plants in the past, but Shirley-Tulip has inspired me to try growing my own later this year, ready for next years display.
I'm sorry some of you have had failures this year. It's been a funny old year for so many things hasn't it?

I am like Wildrose, Waddy, mine too were an absolute failure!

Oh dear, I'm so sorry Rose :-(

I wonder why things fail some years. Last year my sweet peas were OK, this year total failure, I have just pulled them up! I too will be having another go next year as I still have some seeds.

I suppose the success and failures are what gardening is about. Even the professionals have their problems.
