Lathyrus odoratus íNimbusí

More seed success.

I had acquired the seeds from THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN SOCIETY seed bank last year and planted them in October. They produced the first flowers yesterday, 18th April

I am telling myself that I am not jealous.  They are amazing.  I have not had any success with growing sweet peas. I have been given seeds by friends and from the MGS seed bank but I have failed. Once they germinated and started to grow until our cats decided to run in and out of the area and squashed them until they gave up the fight.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

Hilary I have seen sweet peas growing in big pots and they look lovely.   I went out and counted the 'pots' that I have to keep an eye on.  There are more then 100 permanent plants in clay pots,  50 plus cactus and 50 plus plastic pots with cuttings and seasonal seeds. There are more then 200 pots that I have to remember to keep an eye on and also deter the cats  from sleeping among them. I am happy to add more but my sister, in her early eighties, can not cope with the work when we are away on trips.

200 pots sounded like a lot until I started counting ours. For a start we have five on the kitchen windowsill, three in the bathroom, six in the sitting room and seven outside the front door an area which is not strictly ours to use. The front doors along the passage ways of the block of flats which have a little gardens of flowers  pots look so much better than the doors which are bare and barren

Most of our plants in pots could stand two weeks absence of care and water when we used to go away on trips
