Can you put sweet peas in hanging baskets?
Just so, can you grow peas in a hanging basket?
Peas are a good cool climate vegetable to grow in hanging baskets. Plant the peas in the basket the same way you would plant them in the ground, with growing medium, water and fertilizer. Hang the basket in an area with at least six hours of sun per day, keep the peas fed and harvest them when they are fully grown.
Secondly, can sweet peas trail? Most types trail for six to nine feet or so, but there are also shorter forms ideal for containers that are only eight to 20 inches tall. While the sweet pea is considered an annual, there are a few perennial cultivars, but they lack fragrance.
Also, what grows well with sweet peas?
Use a good quality compost and sow several sweet pea seeds to a pot. Plant them about 1cm deep, cover with compost and water them well. Sweet peas perform best if their roots are forced to grow in a deep, narrow channel so choose a tall pot to give them a strong start.
When can I put sweet peas out?
When To Start: In cold winter areas, sow in seed starting containers in early spring about 6-7 weeks before the last frost date, then plant out as soon as soil can be worked; sweet peas can handle light frosts.
