8-steps to how to create your own sweet pea teepee:
Tip! If heavy rainfalls are expected close to planting time, start the seeds off in toilet paper rolls filled with damp seed raising mix. Don’t be tempted to water the seeds for a couple of days after sowing and only apply small amounts of water to keep the soil lightly moist.
