It's plAnted with its roots under my purgola so they should be cool and moist. I hope I can keep it ok. Should I just leave where they are and mulch and cut back to the first healthy bud?

I think I should have done that with my zinnia last year because I got a tall plant with only a few flowers! I'm never sure which bit to pinch and when, when there is a bud on or just new heart shoot?!

Hi all I have seen cosmos cranberries but it's expensive seed. But it looks lovely! Anyone got any hints on other double cosmos that isn't too tall. Or a source to buy cosmos cranberries from. I am after something to do in between my perennials to give that billowy cottage look. I was hoping for 2 ish feet. My cosmos purity got to 4 ft last yr and suffered with the wind!

I will look up the names when I brave the cold in a bit. I can see buds on them but I think that they are about a foot up!
