At the Garden Show Ireland this year I bought an impressive large tripod of sweetpea for only £10 (about USA $17) from the students at Greenmount Horticultural College and planted it in a corner of the garden at the end of May. It contains a mixture of pink, purple and white flowering sweetpea and is very attractive indeed!
I've grown sweetpea in the past and it usually ends up a tangled mess. This year, it is also progressing into a tangled plant, however I'm cutting lots of flowers to bring indoors and it looks good in the garden. I'm trying to deadhead regularly, and feed regularly to keep it flowering and healthy-looking for a long period.
Sweetpea is a lovely garden plant, and it smells quite nice. So glad I purchased it!
