Planting out my Sweet Peas

20130420-174849.jpg

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.

What do you like to grow?  Any Sweet Pea growing tips for  the hot Mid West summer?  Comments are welcome as always, you know I like to chat with you!
