The baby Sweet Pea plants have grown big enough to go and live in the big blue pot.
I put the seeds in toilet rolls to get them started. The rolls disintegrate in the soil as the plants grow.
I grabbed the green bamboo poles from the shed. Ready to build the Sweet Pea climbing frame.

I got a bit carried away with these pictures, I think they look pretty cool!
I tied the top of the wigwam with string, to make a nice climbing shape and to ensure no-one pokes out their eyes on bamboo poles.
Sweet Peas are one of my favourite flowers, but I have not got many flowers off previous attempts to grow them. I hope this year will be different and I will get an abundance of sweet smelling flowers! I have more seedlings growing, so they will move into the big blue pot in a few days too.
