Hello all, I have just received my March copy of Gardeners' World in the post, as I am a subscriber and find that I have no "free" Cosmos seeds. Has anyone else had this problem? I have sent an e-mail to them but am not too optimistic that any will be forth coming!
I got mine daydaisy - hopefully just a packing error with yours. I'm sure your email will do the tick.
I got mine too - but they were mixed up with all the other advertising material that comes with it and I nearly missed them.
Thank you for your replies. My other half has just offered to root through our recycling bin just in case I missed them in all the bumph!
Mine were also in the bumph - almost missed them.
Mine were mixed up in the bumph, I nearly threw them out until they fell out onto the floor.
ah I nearly threw mine away too, they were tucked inside all the leaflets stuck in an envelope:/ I bought some last week too
Like you I didn't think I had mine but they were in amongst the junk
I don't think so John, I've done the same, my seedlings are out in the cold frames. Some of them have already been pricked out into individual pots to grow on.
I started mine like you in my kitchen windowsill, I then moved them outside into my coldframes which are a sturdier version of your plastic grow house, just to harden them off a bit. I then pricked them out into individual pots and these are still outside. I grew the purity type last year and they turned out to be great plants, would have been even better if we had some sun last year.
My seeds in the junk mail too ,they get mixed up in the junk - I think they should stick them to the front of the mag like they do if you don't subscribe to the mag.
hope you find your seeds daydaisy
It would be good if they offer lots of free seeds
I grew them last year Flower bird and they really did grow into big plants.....about 5ft. Just a shame that the Summer was so poor as they would have done even better, as soon as they got into their own Autumn arrived. I will stake mine this year as some of them got battered by all that rain and wind
They lopk really great if you plant them in big drifts and go on for ages.
and they don't need staking or any attention at all once they are planted out.
