Sweet peas

Sweet Peas

The sweet pea ‘Black Knight’ is a highly scented dark red and it’s just beginning to climb the hazel  supports on the allotment.  I picked the first bunch yesterday and mixed it with the last of the Geranium psilostemon from the garden. After six weeks of flowering the geranium is nearly over so I plan to fork out several plants to propagate.  These can be gently pulled apart at the base with the top foliage reduced to about 20cm. Each small plant will have visible roots showing and can then be put in a 9cm pot with fresh compost. Or if you have room plant in rows on the allotment or vegetable patch to use in other beds or to give away. Label and water the plants regularly.
