you need to dig plenty of manure or compost into the ground as you would a runner bean trench,you can sow some next month and over winter them in a frost free greenhouse,these will flower before your spring sown ones.
also you need good seeds of good plants.
feed the soil not the plants
organicish
you learn gardening by making mistakes

Quote from: "greenfingers"
Well i grew some this year for the first time from seed(mr fothergills) and they were blooming rubbish.I planted when they were strong plants and i've had about 5 flowers :oops:  They're still in the garden now but have no flowers on them. :roll: What did i do wrong? :cry:


Did you pinch the tips out when the seedlings got to  4 - 5 pairs of leaves  ?

Some sweet peas are known to not flower or very few if this is not done.
He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
