I love Cosmos too and so do the bees, late flowering for me but lovely, hope the rain doesn't bash them about too much. Not grown the dwarf ones but they look lovely Gertie.

Your very welcome nut, I'm glad they've done well for you. They are very sweet flowers.It's been few years since I've first got the plant and all the offsprings are still white

Anyone done any gardening today?

Been out in the garden all day, pulled up a lot of annuals, planted out lots, generally pottered, enjoying the sunshine. Long may it continue. Got a new compost heap so busy chucking stuff in there

Been having a sort out, got some little plugs of white and purple sweetrocket, jacobs ladder and some white ragged robins if any one wants them. The sweet rocket are a little stunted as they've been in little pots for ages but should grow well if planted out now.Otherwise it's the (new) compost heap for them

How to grow lavender from posti plugs/mini plug plants

I had some tiny little plantlets from T&M years ago. Yes repot them into larger pots as gently as you can. The roots will be fine. If they are as tiny as remember them they will be way too small to plant out, they will just get munched.

Hello, cosmos is an annual so wont come back next year. Mine were late flowering this year, looking good now. Keep deadheading for more blooms until the first frost.

 

 

Jacobs Ladder

I'm hoping mine do the same Lyn, the bees like the one that arrived in the pot. I really like the foliage as well as the flowers.

Can't really remember Jo, maybe a couple of months ago? They germinated well. The ones I have are the pale blue/lilac and white. I love purple but  OH has said this year that's too much purple in the garden!! Been planting out purple sweetrocket & honesty so there's more of that to come
