    I sow mine in loo roll innards
    The sweet peas like a long foot run so these suit them well.
    Also, the whole lot can be planted in the ground and the cardboard will break down.
    It also saves on disturbing the roots.

    I chitted mine first rhe planted them in loo rolls and placed them in the greenhouse, their looking good.
    I kept one pot indoors, they are now almost a foot tall and will be culled soon as i can remember lol, far to leggy.

    all the above were planted about 3/4 weeks ago.

    Point of the post though was ^^^^^ , theyll probably be better off in the greenhouse, their a hardy beast.

    Mine have been stood outside through all the snow and frost. They are nice sturdy plants and I will plant them in the ground as soon as the soil is a bit warmer.

    They do grow tall indoors,longer lengths of stem between leaves,I had to put a stick in to support the two plants,when they were too tall for the sticks I took them out & the plants trailed over the pot edge,looked quite nice on the garden table,they could grow like that in a hanging basket maybe.

    Great, just what I was hoping to hear. My October cold greenhouse sowing (in root-trainers) are looking sturdy and well developed with 2-3 stems and about 5" tall. As we are away from end of February for 4 weeks, I was wondering whether to risk planting them out or not...but I definitely shall - and if it doesn't work, well then I have my February sowing to fall back on (hopefully!)
