I have always achieved excellent results, growing my sweet peas in peat free compost. For my 2016 Sweet Pea Trial I used Dalefoot Potting Compost, a peat free compost made from natural ingredients, including sheep's wool.

I grow my sweet peas in Deep Rootrainers - deep seed trays, which feature ridged cells, designed to encourage the formation of strong, healthy roots. Each section of a Rootrainers tray is removable. The sections unfold and open out like a book, allowing easy examination of the plants' root system as it develops, and ensuring the straightforward removal of your seedlings when it comes to planting.

I sowed all of the Sweet Pea seeds for my 2016 Sweet Pea Trial in Dalefoot Composts Wool Potting Compost. This peat free compost is made from a blend of compost that includes sheep's wool and bracken in the ingredients. Dalefoot Composts Wool Compost is naturally water retentive, meaning that your seedlings don't require watering as frequently.

The Rootrainers Racking Station raises the Sweet Pea plants up, which makes them easier to tend.

I grow my sweet peas in Deep Rootrainers - deep seed trays, which encourage the formation of strong, healthy roots. I use the Rootrainers Racking Station, which is a great space saver - it holds eight packs of Deep Rootrainers over two levels.
