I planted some sweet peas in pots last autumn. I have them in a cold frame and they are doing well. Can I plant them in the ground now, or should I wait until the weather gets warmer?
I have grown 13 plants of Sweet Pea on two wigwams which became too small so I put extra canes down as well. My problem is that a lot of the flower stems are growing bent instead of straight upwards and so they are not suitable for cut flowers. What is the reason for this?
After numerous attempts to grow Morning Glory I've finally managed to get some growth - leaving it in a pot instead of the ground. However, something is attacking the leaves. I've spread salt around the base of the pot in case it's slugs but I can't actually see anything. No other plants seem to be affected.
I was given this plant as a present = the giver does not know its name!! It grows to about 5 ft and has a pink flower. Can you tell me its name please. Thank you Brian
Do sweet pea need to have their center tips removed to make them spread out more?
The plant in the picture grew from seed which I think fell from our bird feeder. It's about 2ft tall and has just pridudes blue & white flowers. Any idea what it is? Last year we got some Nyger seed plants!
Need help identifying this plant. It came in a box of seeds that encourage butterflies. It is thriving along with other ones of the same type in my garden.
I am new in gardening and decided to plant Marigolds from seeds from shop. I know how it must look but what was grown from my planted seeds confused me a lot! I am not sure I am growing Marigolds. What do you think it could be?
Both last year and this year, my mother's Sweet Pea has a small fly inside in the middle each Sweet Pea flower, and she does't like giving small posies as gifts any more. What is the reason for these flies appearing and how should they be destroyed? Thanking you.
I have an Echium of about 1.20 metres in my garden which shall flower next year. How canI protect it from frost? It will only tolerate up to minus 3 Celsius as I read in one of my books. I heaped some earth around its base and popped a huge plastic bag over it as minus 5 are forecasted for tonight. Oh fright! Would a horticultural fleece do a better job or even bubble wrap?

I have several trays of sweet pea in the green house at present, they are about 6 inches in height, i also have a polytunnell, and wonder should i transfer them there, will they keep growing ,and should i put them in to larger pots, i read about a trial being done , some sown in april, and the rest in Oct. and the latter were the best .
I have had some good success this year with poppies and now have several withered stalks with seed heads. Should I collect the seeds and plant them or should I leave them to reseed naturally? If I should collect and plant, when should I do this?
