What is in a name?
We have been growing sweet peas for some time but last year we decided to enter them into the village gala day competition. Little sweetpea, middle sweetpea and big sweetpea all entered some and they won 1st, 2nd and 3rd! This year we entered them again and came 2nd and 3rd - luckily it was a friends who won first so we weren't sad that we didn't.
I love our Sweetpeas, they grow well every year and I love their lush green foliage against the vibrant colours of the flowers. The scent in the summer sun is devine as you walk past them.
I also love the way they attract bees to the garden, the flowers are literally buzzing sometimes.
And what is the secret to growing such virulent sweetpeas ...... chicken poo! :-)
How did you come up with your blog name, I would love to know?
