Alan ... We have also had a meat fly in the new kitchen. Don't have a clue where its come from and just one!! In the Conservatory, we also have mini flies in and around the compost in pot plants and trays - these are usually taken care of by the organic traps (ie spiders) which are effective controls. Think when the heat rises, these lazy individuals come out... don't know the cause though...
Thanks all - it's now just starting to die back in the cold...
I will grow it again though as it's well worth the effort !!!!
Merry Christmas all...and happy post Christmas growing!
Hi all - now the plant is dying off have examined the root and plant structure - it seems there may be 2 plants (without digging it up I can't investigate further) in the same pot - but that doesn't account for 3 colours / different colours to the original. I celebrate it's difference and it has caused us much discussion! It's lovely and I feel there are other users that have experienced the same... I'm tending to call it value for money, lol! ( given a harsh winter it may kill it off...

Hi - I bought this in the spring as an interesting small climber that gives colour all summer long - there is no other instruction. The description so far has been spot on and I love this plant for its colour and tenacity - I don't know much else about it though... will it survive the winter? How can I help...? Answers gratefully recieved please, I love this plant!
The cosmos were the Gardeners World Givaways last year BTW... all supposed to be white lol!
Thanks all, as I say I'm not disappointed, however, the change in colour from one year to the next interests me... how can one plant 'become' three!
