What do I do with my cornflowers I planted them from seeds in a large pot they looked good for sometime but now they are all hanging over , do I just pull them up or will they come again next year .



Cornflower are Centaurea cyanus, and are annuals, so they will die after flowering, you can collect seed and sow them straight away, or leave them till next spring before sowing, if you do a few sowings next spring you can extend the flowering season, sow them where you want them to flower, Derek.
