Beautiful bicolour Balcs.

Thank you, Meadowland! I bought the original plant many years ago but have managed to keep its descendants growing by taking cuttings every year!

Clever you...just started Cosmos from seed...first time with seeds.

How have you grown Cosmos before - from plug plants? I've only ever grown them from seed both on the balcony & when I had an allotment.

Just from seed this year...they have developed 3 sets of leaves so I've pinched the tops.Look a little leggy.

Thank you, Janey. I've had this Pelargonium for many years now. This is a descendant of descendants, etc. I take a few cutting every year to keep overwinter in case the mother plants in the mini-greenhouse on the balcony don't make it! Glad I did so last autumn as most of the mother plants died! 🙁

You've done very well Balc to keep it going through cuttings, you certainly wouldn't want to lose it!

You are quite right, Janey! 👍🏻

Meadowland, I found an open packet of Cosmos seeds today! I also found some Calendulas the same! I'm thinking of sowing some to see if they will germinate still.

I now remember I sowed them to plant in the church gardens. They flowered nicely&in fact the Calendulas have been flowering for a couple of months now as I left the church before the frosts came along to kill the plants. I don't know if there are any seedling Cosmos as I haven't looked closely. But the Calendulas are a real picture! 👍🏻
