sweet peas

I love sweet peas but every year I grow them, this year it was "flying the flag" having tried various types I can never achieve long stems what am I doing wrong



What do you grow them up? This year, my husband made me a tall wooden obelisk which gave my sweet peas lots of room to grow upwards - and they all had long stems! I don't know if this is the answer, but it has worked really well and I've never had such good sweet peas before!

Are you especially growing the long stemmed variety?
I have grown long and short stemmed, my favourite is actually a short stemmed called `cupanni` wich is two-tone purple and has a lovely perfume.
