Cerinthe a great idea, also would not be without cosmos on the plot, only given up this week. Perhaps not the best choice for cutting, but I love the big tall nicotiana there. Strangely and contrary to most people's opinion here I would not grow sweet pea as the constant cutting, deadheading is better achieved at home. I have a big perennial daisy, great for cutting and bringing home. Coarse green leaves, chrysamthemum something. I grow the multi flowered sunflower also cut the flowers off the jer. Artichokes. Also the other artichokes would be good. Been accused of preachiness, (rightly) but I grow flowers on plot to show the other allotmenteers, that there are alternatives to the dull straight rows of veg.
