Keeping cosmos

They are a lovely flower to grow on the alloment and the bees just love them. They will sometimes happily set seed but it is lovely trying out new varieties from the seed people. Also a lovely cut flower especially for the annual seed category in the horticultural show. I find they grow much taller on there as they have plenty of space and dont have to compete with all the other flowers.

Annual grass and weeds can be put on the compost heap but avoid things like bindweed.  Avoid any nasty ones with seed heads. One chap on our allotment puts the more vigorous weeds in a black plastic bag and leaves them to rot for a year or so.
