I'm new to gardening, this is my first summer testing out my green thumb. However, my sweet peas are starting to look like they are dying. Help any suggestions would be great!
Where I live in South Central Texas it is possible to have a crop of sweet peas but it all depends on the weather and pure luck. It is difficult to have a decent crop here. Freezing weather or frost doesn't kill the plants but it does kill the flowers. So if I were to plant the peas in the fall when it is cool enough for the plants to grow it would be freezing or frosting when the flowers bloomed. The same thing in late winter or early spring. The plants would grow but by the time it flowered it is too hot for the plant to grow. It all depends on your climateSo, is Fall the best time to plant sweet peas, to avoid the heat? Or is it really an issue of having to plant in the Spring/Summer AND being in an area that doesn't have very hot Summers?
