Sweet Peas

Keeping the sweet peas in bloom throughout the summer is an annual challenge!

Their bright colours and fragrant perfume bring so much enjoyment to the garden ☺️ The dry and settled weather is great for letting the plants and flowers form – there’s nothing worse than strong winds to tear them from their structures 🌪️

This recent dry weather and borderline drought conditions, however it’s starting to affect them with the leaves starting to fall and the plants clearly needing rain 💧

Remember to water the plants regularly and continue to cut their flowers for homemade bouquets. Doing this will encourage the plants to continue flowering until at least October! 💐
