Hey TP, what about Select Seeds?

I've been getting great plants from them but they sell both plant and seed for sweetpeas. Is there something amiss I don't know about?

Graham Rice

I agree, Select Seeds are a good source, they're on my comprehensive list. But I missed the three varieties they sell as plants: they're not under Plants>Vines, you have to look in Plants>A-Z. As for seed, they have good varieties but only a modest range.

Janine Wherity

Regarding sweetpeas, I tried to grow cupani and other fragrant sweet peas last year but they were decimated by green fly/aphids........I sprayed them with nettle tea which discoloured the leaves and then I sprayed with insecticide which finished the plants off altogether!! Any tips to stop this happening this year?? I also have a ladybird house but am unsure how effective the leadybirds were as I never spotted any around!
