      Last year, I was a bit late sowing some sweet peas. Consequently they didn’t flower. The plants are looking reasonably healthy, standing around 5ft tall. Are they likely to flower this year, or have them out?

      Confused.com here :scratch: Just sown the seeds for this years spencer sweet peas last week for planting out in March . They flower beautifully up to October , then go down hill to green bin land. @Freddy you have healthy plants in February . I always thought they were annuals in our northern climate ?

      They can be sown later on (September/October) to overwinter. Mine don’t fall into that category though, as they were probably sown around May/June, and didn’t really get going until very late in the season.
