Last years Sweet Pea tunnel
Phew, Mothers Day preparations were manic. We nearly ran out of flowers. I have been vintage shopping today, this week I shall show you my finds. Seed sowing is top on the list now. I have Sweet peas growing away in the poly tunnel. The Autumn sown ones damped off , but these sown in the Spring seem very happy chaps indeed,lots of strong growth. I shall start to harden them off this week. Sow some now-go on you wont regret it,they smell so divine. Seeds and plants from simplyseedsandplants.co.uk

I love sweet peas! Mine are doing well, I might plant some at the allotment, just so I can smell them all the way home on my bike. It might help me get up the BIG hill! ;)
