My green wizard has just started to show. It didn't flower last year with being newly set. Fingers crossed this year

I have a free packet of cosmos from the GW mag but no where to plant if I sow. Do they actually need much room??

How long before I furtle in my seeds???

That's not what the label says but will watch out. Can you prune or do they not like it. Also hiw do you stop hebes getting leggy and woody. I'm a fan of compact and bushy!

I'm meant to as my garden is not big at all but I just can't. This year I have just thought, one more, oh and a spare, and if that doesn't come I won't have anything!!!

I am a sucker for anything that seems a bargain. I am always drawn to the bargain shelves and the end of season items. This year it's seeds as they are self collected so ultimate bargain! Also cuttings, I keep eyeing up other people's plants to see what I can half inch (pinch) to make cutting material. Just need the summer growth to start then will patrol my dads garden.

I took most of the heads from his dahlia bishop of ???? Began with an L. He then had v bad weather and lost the heads he had left. I felt so bad I had to give it back , but I bargained some seedlings when he has germinated them. A worthy prize for saving at least some if his seed!!

Did the red one have bronze foliage. Mine was called queen Victoria! I had a pink one with green leaves and it was a vivid pink, wish I knew the name as I loved it. Took a cutting which is hanging on!
