Hi all has anyone got any blooms from their free seeds with the March issue yet?

Mine are budding and I'm expecting many flowers soon

Mine are about a foot high so far Matt, hoping for lots of flowers in next few weeks.

PaulaH & Matt, mine are about 6inch high, rightly or wrongly I've nipped tops out to hopefully bush them out. No sign of flowers but nice foliage. The first time I've really bothered growing annuals from seed so they'd better look good. Not too hopeful with the Gypsofil..can't spell them. Love white flowers on a dusk evening.

I would imagine they'll catch up KEF. I've planted some in a shady border, they aren't as big as the ones on the sunny side but I had so many of them I just put them all over the garden and gave loads away.

Mines are about a foot tall and looking good so far.

Mine are about a week/10 days from flowering, altho I bought my seeds. It is very hard to fail with "Purity".

I've got two small flowers. Just opened within the last few days

03/07/2013 at 19:19

Cosmos in pot looking healthy but no sign of a flowering bud as yet,this is first one.

can we collect seed from these Mine are starting to flower. They're growing amongst the veggies

04/07/2013 at 09:27

Emma, I grow these every year, about 60-70 plants for white drifts and foils to my other plants. I have never collected seeds but I might give it a go, altho' I would hate to fail and be left with none at all as they are so important to me.... and so easy to do.

You also have to deadhead to keep the flowering going right up to the end of summer/frosts, so I don't really get chance to collect good seed. Perhaps this year I will sacrifice a couple of plants for seeds... but it will be hard

04/07/2013 at 10:32

Just went out and counted at least 15 buds on 1 plant with the very top ones just opening

04/07/2013 at 14:06

i used the whole packet oooops lol

04/07/2013 at 14:22

As you would.....

04/07/2013 at 14:29

what stunning flowers though!

Purity are usually bigger than that... keep trying. feed and deadhead and they will grow.
