sweetpea vine propagation


How do I get more of these? Are there seeds on the plant? Can it be done by cuttings? I want to put some of them in other places in my yard and dont know the first thing about them.
Thanks
Deb

Gotta be a perennial, it came back this year. I got flowers but no pea pods yet. Hopefully I will get some pods on it. Have you tried planting the peas? If so, were they easy to grow?
Thanks

Hello


Hey there!
If you are deadheading, that means you are getting rid of the pods-to-be! Hence, no peas.
If you want seeds, let the peas form (No deadheading) and let them ripen on their own, poof - you have plenty of (peas) to plant. I find they are a little on the slow side for germinating, but they are very easy from seed.
Nice plants!

Is there any plant or seed that you don't know about? LOL. Just kidding. I love reading about all the plants and seeds and seeing the pic's of course. I learn alot from everyone.
I love the pic of the sweet pea. Very pretty. I'll have to get me some seed and see what happens in my new flowerbed. I posted alot of pic's since I started. Of my flowers of course. The bed is still in progress and it will probably be next year before I get it finished. It's a really big one. My whole front yard. Sounds crazy, doesn't it?

You have 2 different plants in that picture. One is the sweet peas - tey just multiply on their own. I dig up little shoots and move them. The other plant (with the heart shaped leaves is Hyacinth Bean - that makes the purple seed pods.

You have both, bali. The one on the left is the sweet pea vine and the one on the right is the hyacynth bean vine. Both are beautiful. My sweet pea now has pods on it. They are green. I think the hyacynth gets purple bean pods on it??? Maybe someone else can tell you better about the hyacynth bean pods. But I do think they are different colors.

The vine on the right is the Hyacinth Bean Vine. Those are supposed to be annual vines here in zone 7 but I had several come back this year. These vines get the huge purple pods on them. To get seeds, I let the pods dry on the vine until they are brown and then pick off the pods and open them up to get the seeds. You'll get loads and loads of seeds - plenty to share with your fellow PlantSwap buddies!
