In this way, do Sweet peas need something to climb on?
Plant the vines about 6″ apart in a sunny location, ideally with protection from intense, afternoon sun. Unless you've selected a bush-type, your peas will need strings or a trellis of some kind. Peas use tendrils to climb. They can grasp anything that's a quarter-inch or less.
Furthermore, how often do you water sweet pea seeds? Sweet peas rarely need watering more than once a week, but you need to maintain even moisture throughout the growing season. They do not like hot weather, so water them regularly in the summer, but do it early in the day to prevent buds from dropping, yielding and fewer flowers, and to prevent plants from scorching.
Regarding this, should you soak sweet peas before planting?
Soak the seeds in water for 24 hours before sowing. This softens the seed coat and speeds up the sprouting process. While the seeds are soaking, fill your planting pots with good quality potting soil.
What month do sweet peas flower?
By early to mid summer, the fragrant flowers are in full bloom in the garden. Sweet peas are best planted directly into the garden bed, but in areas with a long, cold spring, you can start seeds indoors four to six weeks before the last frost date in your area.
