Talkback: Eight plants to grow with cosmos

Posted: 07/04/2016 at 21:34

No Bill. 

Resow 

white cosmos looks good with cotinus royal purple, persicaria red dragon and red cannas for me.  With grasses like deschampsia, elymus magellanicus and pennisetums too.

Pippa was excellent....think she was part of Geoff Hamilton's GW or maybe AT.  A real pest and disease expert.

I potted tomato plants earlier in the week....look absolutely fine.  Potted some yesterday and they are fine.  Potted 3 today and will check tomorrow.  

I have used a lot of wyevale compost these past few weeks and everything looks good and healthy.

LYN, is it fresh compost?  

However, this is what this thread is all about, viz., if composts are better or not this year

Bodix, 

do you know the variety? If its 15' tall the soil is suitable. I also don't think it is a nutrient problem. does it look healthy as a pale green tree?

However, I have a feeling its doing exactly what it should do. Pink being the colour in bud..?

oh! Welcome Bodix
