Can I grow Sweet Peas in containers?

I have garden bed that I planted my nasturtiums seeds in. They are in the ground. Since nasturtiums do better in poor soil, I can't plant my sweet peas with them in the same soil. I want to grow the sweet peas in 5 gallon containers throughout my naturtium bed. I was going to put the containers in my 6 foot tomato cages made of green pvc pipe for support. Will this work? Can I grow sweet peas in containers?
