The Q&A Archives: Sweet peas

Question: I started some sweet peas from seeds and i have a few of them growing .one of my plants just got flowers but i need some kind of idea to how and were should i plant them cause i have one in a hanging plant and thats not working very well. what shoould i do?

Answer: Sweet peas are happiest growing up a trellis, fence or post. In a pinch, you can even let them grow up a tree trunk! You'll need to train them to stay put so use some string or something the tendrils can wrap around. They're climbers, not hangers so they won't be happy in a hanging basket. Since you already have one in a hanging basket you can just set the basket on the ground and let the sweet peas trail along the ground. Enjoy your flowers!
