Planting Sweet Peas

Leave a comment

Definite signs of spring on the allotment today. There are a few more daffodils, with more to come which will be great for Easter. Plus the tulips are just that bit larger than last week, and the lilies are now on their way, hurrah!

We bought a job lot of sweet peas yesterday and so put them in on the trellis next to the shed. The variety is Spencer Mixed which are just the best we’ve used and we always look for them – so hardy and a fabulous scent. Perfect. The rest of the sweet peas, I’ll scatter aboard at home plus there are some for pots.

Not only that but the currants and rhubarb are also on their way. The allotment was great this morning – so no idea why we were the only ones there – maybe everyone else in Elstead is still in bed trying to catch up with their lost hour? Who knows!…
