Keeping cosmos

Thanks Leggi, I shall certainly try to grow them from seed.  There is a lovely deep maroonie colour which I would love for next year, so will certainly try to save the seed.  I presume you sow the seed in spring for planting out early summer?

Hi, I must be a complete idiot, because I have managed to put a question about cosmos on three times, have no idea how I've done it, and have no idea how to remove two of them.   Please ignore two of them

Hi, Is  it possible to keep Cosmos from year to year or is it purely an annual.  Have grown them for the first time this year and would love to keep them for next year, but wonder if it is best to start from scratch next year.

The first I knew of Beechgrove was reading Kate1123 and the rest of the posts and I watched in on IPlayer last night.  Thoroughily enjoyed it.  Very informative and I will be watching it regularly from now on.

Hi, I'm new to gardening forums and I am really enjoying the Gardeners World forum.  I've had a couple of questions answered and enjoy the friendliness of everyone.  Shall certainly be looking at the forum everyday.  Thanks.

I also watched about 10 minutes of it and changed over to football (which must be a first for me).  Like LavenderLady and everyone else I would like Gardeners World extended to an  hour or a programme that gives ideas for new plants and how to do the jobs that are probably easy but maybe not everyone finds easy, such as staking tomatoes/ runner beans.  Mine always seem to collapse.

potato sack compost

I have grown seed potatoes in bags with varying success.  The first time I was really pleased because there. were lots of delicious potatoes.  Then decided I would do some for Christmas/New Year and had none at all(think this was because the wind broke the stalks)  This year the crop was smaller but the potatoes again were lovely.   I have always put the used soil on the garden and started with fresh.  Am now wondering if the small amount of potatoes is worth the effort.
