what do l need to do to my sweetpeas so that l get long stems for cutting?



As far as I know, the length of sweetpea flowering stems is down to the variety you're growing rather than anything you do to them.

Choose Spencer varieties, start them off late October/early November, overwinter in a cold frame , plant out end of March/early April in well prepared soil. When they start to flower make sure the soil never dries out. That's the only way to get the really long stems.
