Arranging Sweetpeas

I love sweetpeas and while they aren’t blooming yet in my garden our local market sells them for £2.50 a bunch, so I’ve been buying them for the last couple of weeks to brighten up the dining room. The problem I find with sweetpeas is because they are so longstemmed it’s hard to find a vase that stops them from drooping. So I’ve been using an old Paul Mason wine bottle – it also works really well for Peonies too.  Cheap, simple and you get to drink the wine too!

  1. I’m attempting to grow a lot of these this year, I love them. I have an old school milk bottle that I might use.
    I’ve never seen sweet peas for sale on the market/ at a florist – must look harder.
