Red dahlia my lab follows just like Montys dog does....same temperament.
Too early for French beans but not sugar snap peas
I will sow runner beans n french beans in next week or so but it's mild here. I sow in trays to germinate then into boxes in the greenhouse and then outside
Remind me how much space do you have?
you have masses of colour to come from your sowings

Cosmos problems!

Wood green, I share your fondness for the whites.....I grow these in groups. When sun shines they just glisten. And in partial shade they light up the area.
I grow colours too but wait to see what they are and match them up.
Funnily enough.....contrary to how I previously thought....they do better in good soil. I pre-empt their increased vigour by further pinching. ( great believer in the Chelsea chop and regular pinching out)

Growing Eryngium

I think if they are hobbitt yes you can move them. Eryngiums form tap roots usually and don't like to be moved. However I have and do. Try to get good rootball but decide first where you want them dig that hole and get them in again without much ado.
I take risks moving plants all the time but usually get away with it!
