Oh no, why won’t my sweet peas grow? I have asked myself this question so many times. After a lot of effort and patience, I finally figured my flower friends out. I now know what it takes to help my sweet peas flower and bloom. Use these simple steps to get the most beautiful sweet peas on the block.
- Are your sweet peas getting enough light? Sweet peas should have direct sunlight for six to eight hours every day.
- Are you fertilizing them right? All they really need is a little compost, and they won’t even need that if you’re growing them in rich soil.
- Are you deadheading your sweet peas? Blossoms should be plucked off as soon as they fade to keep the plant from forming a seed pod.
“Lawn fertilizer has a high nitrogen content, so keep it away from your sweet peas.”
