Sweet peas

Sweet peas (lathyrus)

This photo was taken last September, I had planted some sweet peas by the old
trellis that was already here and they did really well. Directly in front of them is
a beautiful eucalyptus tree.

looks very nice ive never grown sweet peas before, i now no how to plant then by putting the soil in newpaper but as they grow up a few inch when do i pinch the tops out, or do i do that.. and do they like alote of manure i use chicken pellets do i need to no anything else besides pick the flowers

Hi Juliano.....ha..ha..I have the same problem as you...mine are now about 2" high with one set of leaves...I shall pinch them out as the next set develops. When I planted these in the pic.....we hadn't been here long and I just dug the ground over...threw half a bag of compost in the trench and stuck them in. I fed them every two weeks and just kept cutting the flowers. Chicken waste can be a bit strong and burn the roots....but if these are special pellets...then should be fine.

i've chucked aload of seed on the garden in my wild patch i'm hoping they'll do there own thing.
i brought some small plants this year and they had hardly any flowers on them.
