I was very dissapointed with Tithonia seeds, I grow thousands of seeds every year, would these grow for me, would they hell, they all germinated, got to the pricking out stage, then to the potting on stage, then one after the other died. 

Maybe they don't like being potted on, i don't know, never have seed growing disasters.

I can't see photos, but you'd know if it was badgers, your garden would look like you've just dug it over ready for spud planting, their holes are about a 30 cms across or even bigger, there's loads of them around here, they pull a tremendous amount of bank soil out into the road with their digging.

Planning ahead

I love the smell of it,  It reminds me of when we lived in London and every house had it for a front hedge.

Don't see it so much down here but I've grown a hedge of it just to screen of the area of garden that  has become a bit of dumping ground. 

Planning ahead

It will self seed if you leave some pods on.  You can take cuttings but seeding is probably the best.
