I think you need only to worry if the soil was overdry KEF.  Thnk they would have died then.

COSMOS pinching out

Posted: 28/05/2014 at 18:45

Me too.  It doesn't really delay flowering that much.  Plus, for me cosmos get very tall amd even need staking.  I will still pinch out for another week to,produce lots of flowerimg....amd sturdy.....stems 

Slugs and lupins

Ever hopeful,,hi.

Well I,hand pick at night....very effective. Today I cut the lower stems and stems lying on the  ground off and tidied up all debris there.  It makes it easier to see any slugs there and it makes it that much harder for them to climb up.

 

Feeding plants in the rain?

Yes, fish blood and bone is basically a three month feed but blood is a quick release nitrogen.  

I would apply phostrogen when a god few dry hours are likely. Do it when you can.  If you apply fish blood amd bone at plantImg time, say early spring, the food should be available from mid summer onward.  

A seaweed spray, Epsom salt spray I apply often in the morning on a dry day.  (I sense seaweed spray is not liked by slugs....anyone else think this?)
