How to... Plant Sweet Peas

You need to train tall varieties of sweet peas against canes. Space bamboo canes 30cm (12”) apart in straight rows, or in a circle to form a wigwam tightly secured at the top. 

If you don’t want to train each plant individually you can drape and attach pea and bean netting to the canes and the plants will climb up.
