I had problems with vernons last year when the Amethyst trailing geraniums I ordered turned out to be bright pink and striped! I complained and was sent another batch which also had 2 plants of the wrong colour. They are being replaced in the Spring for me. I also bought a collection of 4 Dianthus which were named varieties and a little bit on the expensive side and after a few days one of the plants died .when I phoned to tell them I was told the variety wasn't in stock any more and would I like to choose something else so I chose a Josephine clematis which when it flowered wasn't - it is also being replaced in the Spring. All complaints have been dealt with promptly with no quibbles and the plants supplied have been of good quality so I think on balance they are a good company to buy from

That is so annoying when you would like to grow a particular variety and can't buy the seed!!
It sounds like a good variety to grow with resistance to things - I hope you manage to track some down I will keep looking

Cosmos seeds - mixed up

Chicly - Bob and Nutcutlet are right - the stems of white cosmos are usually green and the red ones will most likely have slightly coloured stems

Tomato Growpots, any good?

I use them for growing my cucumbers - we got ours as part of a competition prize so didn't actually buy them. I think they are useful for cues as it is easy to keep water away from the stem
I use flower buckets with the bottom cut out for my tomatoes and think this is just as good
