IThey have not flowered yet. Pleas advise.

Sweet peas are pinched out when pencil-high to make more stems. Sweet peas like plenty of moisture when making their growth and with sunnier weather they will flower, probably in abundance.

If they have reached the top of their support, just let  them trail as they wish.
