The cosmos have being doing really well over the past few weeks. The varieties Purity and Sensation are quoted as growing to three feet but mine are a good one to two feet higher than that so have certainly needed staking.
I see that the Sonata varieties only grow to two feet so I may try these next year, and they have an RHS AGM.
Talking of shorter varieties I have kindly been given a packet of Sunflower Music Box Mixed which only grow to around two and a half feet.
This yellow one was one of this year’s tall unknown varieties.
Among the various pot marigolds I spotted this yellow one with bright red pinheads in the centre.
As I’ve mentioned recently I have some Pygmy Formula Mixture seeds which grow to less than a foot, which sounds ideal for planters and pots.
Have a good week.
