Sowing Sweet Peas

This may seem like a strange thing to be doing when the temperatures have just plummeted below zero again and it’s snowing, but rest assured, March is still a good time to be planting sweet peas under cover. It’s also a reminder than in a few months our gardens will have sprung to life again and we’ll hopefully have much to admire; always good to keep your spirits up with such musings!

I’ve just come in from sowing mine in the potting shed. I planted them in root trainers with two seeds to each module; the seeds were pushed down to about 1-1.5cm deep and then covered with compost. Once their roots have filled the containers, I’ll be hardening them off outside for a good week or so, before planting out around the hazel wigwams in the vegetable garden.

They were such a glorious addition to the garden last summer; I really hope we have an equally gorgeous display this year.
