First sweet peas.


By Ange2

First sweet peas.

I rarely have good luck with s.peas as they're usually squished into small, dry spaces. This year we grew them from seed and planted in 2 of our new raised beds.
These are the first ones. I am feeling very pleased with myself. (Smug grin).

These are lovely shades ... I would be smug too!

I love them but I haven't had much luck before now. Slugs have (amazingly) not been too much of a problem so far. (50+ last night!!)

Ange, they really have invaded your garden haven't they? I disposed of fifteen last night and today found a further twenty, mostly lurking within, or under, the fading leaves of Primroses. They are always the same type, brown with the orange side, one was found in the greenhouse today which explains the holes in the Zinnia foliage.

I did read that if they are disposed of about twenty metres from the garden where they were, they lose their sense of tracking. Let's think, off to the nearby woods with them ...
