There's an elderly man on an allotment near the house who grows the most incredible display of sweetpeas each year. We managed to catch him on site a few weeks ago and ask for some dry pods, hoping to grow these on our own allotment. We left them a couple of weeks in an envelope and popped them in the fridge for a few days down amongst the salad, prior to sowing them 3 weeks ago. They're all away now and without a single casualty. They're all in a cold frame now but I like the advice of adding a layer or two of fleece as protection. It seems to make so much sense to start them off now - for a bigger show next year. They're definitely not out of favour or fashion with us, how could that ever be possible. They'll be grown up wigwams of canes and will hopefully play their part in attracting the pollinators to our plot.
