Ah !  Joyce, I knew there was a reason for delaying that picture .  Too impulsive.    You are right.  H. Pan Limelight will open up huge white flowers in a few days.  


Limelight is spectacular....in flower

Cosmos problems

Posted: 19/07/2016 at 12:46

I always grow a few cosmos specifically to be very large and tall plants for a long autumn display.  


Denying all flower buds, pinching back, and potting on eventually into 3 or 5 litre pots will produce   5' or even 7' tall plants that will need supports...like delphiniums.....with flowers from late August onwards.  Or tie them to a trellis or fence or wires for a spectacular display 


bit different.  Bit of fun

Persicaria OrangeField, canna Tropicanna Black and canna Durban behind....both will flower profusely until late autumn here 

What is your weather like?

Forecast to be 32 (90 Fahrenheit) in places here today.....no doubt even hotter where some of you are .  Too hot even for me 


hopefully coastal breezes should keep temps to less than 25.

Yes Mark, Got Heavenly Blue and a few others but all have purple rather than true blue.


I grew a beautiful blue called Eileen Grenfell...if I remember correctly. wonderful blue. it survived the winter but new growth was weak, flowers were smaller and plant fizzled out. Also grown 'True Blue" and another but disqppointed with colour 


had I known I would have taken cuttings in its first year.


it will be interesting to see how yours goes Mark
