Just planted sweet peas in ground..apart from slugs do I have to protect them from anything else like birds and put net around them? thankyou



They are vulnerable to cold winds when young so if the weather deteriorates they might benefit from some protection. Clear plastic bottles with the bottoms cut off make good cloches and if you leave the tops off you get enough ventilation to prevent to much humidity inside. Its a good idea to put the canes in place before planting to avoid damaging the roots later.
