What sort are they snowy? Some of mine aren't in bud yet

Scabious folia

You're sure of the scabious I assume? Which letters in the second word are you sure of? 

Is it alive?

Tall and spindly and falling over (it's windy here) are what I expect from cosmos. I will pinch out.

Never thought about pinching out the annuals artjak. Maybe I should do my cosmos and the larkspur. That's all, any others are still in their packets and may or may not be direct sown. That depends on whether I get their patch cleared in time to get them in.

You'll need to remove a lot of top to balance the lack of root. The roots won't hold that lot upright apart from the water loss problem. I'd cut them back really hard. Get them in the soil asap, their roots shouldn't be exposed to the air. Give them a good watering in but don't over water them after that. They won't be absorbing much because they haven't got much root and they won't be using much if you chop the top growth back. You don't want them to drown.

I think that would be the most reliable way Patsy.

Hi VP, good points, not interfering. You're allowed to interfere anyway, your view is as important as anyone else's.

Can you take a photo or 2 Kevin so we can see what you've got there?

My car was chosen for its plant/compost carrying space Dove. The last one had a catch where the boot lid came down, put there especially for ripping open bags of compost as they came out.

They're easy. Sow when they're ripe and dropping off the plant, (or at that time if year if you're buying)  put them outside and wait. You'll have to wait a few years for flowers, most bulbs aren't that quick. I did have some alliums flower in 2 years on one occasion but mostly longer
