It doesn't matter how big a garden you have or how small a front doorstep you have. Sweetpeas have followed us through every size of garden we have had, they have been grown in tyres, in pots by the front door, over the doorway, in a window box cascading down. They have filled our years with a heady smell that can linger at each touch, they make you want to stop, be calm and close your eyes in their cosseted foliage. Give sweetpeas a try this year and sow them in open ground or undercover now.
Andrew takes you step by easy step in this short film about how to sow sweetpeas, all you will need is a pot, some compost and your index finger, and a slightly manic excitement.
