They do have dead looking brittle stems right now.  Charity said "slightly green" so I am very optimistic they will be ok

Talkback: Eight plants to grow with cosmos

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.

HAVE COMPOST SUPPLIERS UPPED THEIR GAME THIS YEAR.

Posted: 07/04/2016 at 18:43

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
