Sweet Peas

Pin It Now!

Here are the very last of the sweet peas I grew this year. The first year that I lived in this home, I planted sweet peas and they did so well. Ever since then I've had a hard time growing them. I planted a pack of seeds that never came up so I planted another pack. I think I planted 3 packs of seeds and I got 2 small vines of sweet peas. I think the problem was my dog was walking all over the area I planted them. I finally wised up and put a small wire fence around the seeds and had a little better luck. Hopefully next year will be better!

Beautiful colors :-).
They do seem a bit hard to grow.
Plus I don't think some of the seeds are very fresh so to speak in stores anymore.
Good luck with next years crop:-).
Have a great day!

Cindy, Your sweet peas make me think of my gramma's yard. It was rampant with them, but I have trouble with them, too. I finally have given up a little on them. How is your mom?

Very pretty! I've never tried growing them. Hopefully you'll have better luck with them next year.

Those are so pretty! I wish that they would grow here...I don't think that they like our heat. You really are a gifted gardener, and I hope that you have even more next season!

BTW, thank you so much for your sweet comment. I immediately thought of you when I pulled out the terrarium! :)

Oooh, I have always loved sweet peas and they grow so well here in Phx. But I have not grown them in a couple years, so seeing yours was a treat! They smell sooo devine and the colors are sooo yummy!

Man, I have planted sweet peas every year for years and have NEVER gotten them to come up. I've tried scoring, I've tried everything. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I even tried planting starts, and those didn't do well either! ARGH! ~A :-)
