    Goodness! Our climate is SO different. I should not be surprised. Sweet pea is an odd one for us. We can grow them, but by starting them in about October so that they can overwinter a bit and be ready to grow in early spring. They do not last long afterward. They really are impractical here, although the seed are available. Pansy is a cool season annual only. They last through early spring, and maybe into late spring, but not summer. Of course, with such a brief season, we do not commonly grow them from seed, but procure six packs.

      We have a very temperate climate here thanks to the Gulf Stream. If it wasn’t for the Gulf Stream our climate would be more like Canada. Our Pansy plants will do well all summer and into autumn and sweet pea does extremely well. Both are common in the UK garden. Our summers are getting hotter but the heat waves don’t last long enough to do too much damage to plants. It is amazing how different places can be but still feel very similar and nearby thank to the internet.
