Yes I know about the popsickle kniphofias....viz., that they are smaller, finer foliage and flower for longer.  Probably wouldnt lose them down here.

Watered too much I think.  Cosmos simply do not like it.  

I water overhead though without any ill effects. Probably too wet and it would not have helped when you plunged them outside without hardenjng them off.

i,would stop watering and take them back into greenhouse and cover with fleece if its hot

just a thought.  Look under your pots to see if any tiny slugs are there.  They will devour young cosmos plants if in wetttish conditions

Great minds Liri.  I bought Arabella a few weeks back.  

Dove, I have seen kids, encouraged by their parents, using these sheds as a toilet!    Isnt it great when we nring you down to earth like that?  Seriously though, great bit of trading.  Impressed 

hot,,hot,,hot today.  Just confronted my noisy neighbour about his noise levels.  Apologies, etc.  I advised him to get top quality ear muffs and the noisiest tools he can to make life easier for him...????

Yarrow, enchantment lilies were the first I grew.  They suit my neutral soil and grow 4 to 5' tall in my dry front border.
