Hello Leadfarmer - I bought a pack of 6 plants from my local garden centre and I know that Homebase stock them in the Spring- i think you will find them readily available - look in the Alpine section  They are easy to look after !This is one of my sinks

I have grown a Sonata Cosmos in an 8" (20cm) terracotta pot  so I would have thought that 24cm would be o.k  The only thing you may have to do is give the plant a bit of support.

Hello Jovia - You could take the tops out which will hopefully make the plants bush out but they will probably still be a bit taller than the Sonata dwarf Cosmos.What size pot did you intend planting them in?
