Can anyone tell me how to care for sweet pea seedlings. I bought some and am growing them up a fence. They are now about three to five inches tall. What do I do now? Pinch out what?! I know I should pinch out something but what I don't know. Thank you in advance.



You can take out the tip of the growing point. This will stop the main stem growing upwards and encourage it to produce side shoots.

The more shoots, the more flowers.
