Do I need to pinch my Sweet Peas?


By Andrea

My sweet peas are comomg along very nicely - I sowed them in October so they are well established. Can anyone tell me what I do with them when they reach tje top of the support that I am growing them up -its about 2 metres high and they are almost to the top- do I pinch out the growing shoots or just let them carry on growing?

On plant Lathyrus odoratus



Hiya, I usually pinch out the stem when it has four pairs of leaves to encourage my sweet peas to make more flowering stems. I don't know if I do right or wrong, but I do get loads of flowers :0)
