This has grown from seed sown last year. At the time there must have been a lot of them as I have a few dotted around the garden. I've grown the purple one before but can't remember it looking so different from the white one



 This is the white one



They don't look like the same plant at all. Any ideas?

Watching seedlings grow 2016

I did change my mind Went into Wilkos on the hunt for some bargains, there weren't any, but I did come back with these. All new plants for me and a couple of perennials types to bring up for next year. 



Are these Cosmos seedlings leggy?

I'd say these are looking a little leggy Craig. I think cosmos have a tendancy for this, at the start they are long spindly plants.

It's not the end of the world, they will be ok. They would have benefitted from being planted deeper into the soil. Light levels indoors will be so different to natural light. They wont develop into good strong plants if you leave them inside.

They are hardy, so will do much better outside

I'd almost forgotten about frost archiepem. Split some oxe eyed daisies and geraniums. Treated my long suffering pot bound clematis to some fresh top soil and some blood fish and bone. I think this year will be it's last year in the pot.

Sowed a few bits and did a lot of looking at the plants and the insects. I wish it would warm up a bit here, I'm still going out in layers and a hat




Need suggestions for fast growing flowers/weeds/plants
