    I have a reminder set up to sow in October this year!
    My friend sent a photo of her sweet peas on 4 May. She'd sowed some seeds in the empty tomato planter in the greenhouse last autumn, and had enough for a bunch or two in May. So - I'll be joining you peanut, autumn sowing for me!

    Some of Mrs B's - Old Fashioned Mix (high scent mix by Kings) and the purple ones are Beaujolais. These are vases 5 and 6.

    Most of mine have shown me their first flowers now. Just need the white ones really to complete the show.

    My winter sown ones are just starting to bud up now - look to be mostly pastel shades so far. Good big pants though, so hopefully plenty of flowers :-)

    My first pick of the year. "America", a grandiflora from the 1890s.

    Very disappointing Martin.
    My lobelia was sold as blue but the flowers are all purple.

    I've sown some sweet peas from last years saved seeds they were a nice mix of purple, lilac, pink and white, and out of the 4 sweet peas that have flowered they are all dark purple.
    Not really what I wanted but they do smell nice.

    Is that caused by too much direct sun on them maybe? Just a thought???

    Mine are supposed to be white and are now about 15cm high so I have a while to wait to find out.
