Sorry, can't remember when i planted them and didn't put date on label! They have grown well to about 2 feet high but no sign of any flowers!

I have the same problem!  I planted mine originally in the garden but only one or two flowered, this year i planted them in a pot (when Monty did on GW) but no flowers at all! will wait and see but if no flowers appear i don't think i'll bother with them again, there's plenty of other plants to try

I have had the same problem, always grown Cosmos with great results but this year they have either shrivelled up and died, or those that have lived look very sad and not flowering well at all, despite doing nothing different from previous years.  Oh well, try again next year!

Sorry for not responding sooner!  I can be a bit lax with watering probably because living in Cheshire we never have too many days without rain, i guess it could be too much sun, i have had the same problem in previous years hence why i keep moving it round the garden to different spots tho wherever i put it it has been in some sun.  Guess i'll wait to find a new spot next year.  Thanks for your comments much appreciated!

sorry don't know the answer to getting rid of these little critters, but would love to know how to stop them digging up the soakaways from our septic tank, it gets very expensive having to have them dug up, re-lined and re filled only to find all the gravel back on top where they've dug it up!  My husband says he hopes they get septiceamia (sorry about the spelling)

 My Acer seems to do this every year, with the leaves turning brown and dying off, thought it might be wind burn so have moved it to a more sheltered spot (it's in a pot) but still happens. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks
