How about some snapdragons? Can grow a couple of feet high if not even higher- and have a long flowering peroid with regular deadheading. Not fully hardy though

Keeping cosmos

Cosmos are lovely flowers- I've been growing the Purity ones for the first time this year.

Interesting what you said about the white roots. One of mine got really battered earlier this year and the stem was badly bent- the plant was still alive so I just left it resting on the ground.Just by chance I picked up the stem the other day and there are loads of roots coming out of the stem that was on the ground. So I guess it is possibly to take stem cuttings

Hello, I'm ever hopeful that I will have some hedgehogs. I have some gaps in the boundary to next door just in case.  Flo- sorry to hear about Blue Boy, but as you said, he's living the natural life. Are you going to do some more re-homing?

Thanks for the interesting thread  I've been thinking of getting this plant for a while now.

Some of the seed suppliers have said that they need a peroid of cold in a fridge to get them going. Gary- Was this your experience? I'm all for growing from seed, I can wait to see a result, but can't be doing with the faff of having to put them in the fridge before they germinate. 

I want to grow them as they attract bees & butterflies.
