1. We tried to grow sweet peas in the garden last year and they didn’t do too much. Perhaps it was too hot when I planted them? I also tried to direct sow and our soil is very dense so they didn’t come up too well. I will give some of these tips a try.

    • Hi Summer. I find direct sowing eating peas is a waste of time as animals like mice eat them and they never have a chance. Thats why i always so these type of seeds is cardboard tubes or a long length of guttering.(half tube on the roof to take water down to the drain ) not sure what you call this where you are. I find once the seed germinates the animals dont want to munch anymore. Im not sure if this happens with sweetpeas but might be worth a try?
