Buy Cosmos atrosanguineus Chocamocha ('Thomocha') (PBR) chocolate cosmos: Smells deliciously chocolatey

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

    • Position: full sun
    • Soil: moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
    • Rate of growth: average
    • Flowering period: June to September
    • Hardiness: half hardy

      A beautiful perennial, with sumptuous, velvety, bronze flowers produced above lance-shaped, blue-green foliage from June to September. The aroma of this new variety is even more chocolatey than Cosmos atrosanguineus and it's more compact too, so may not need staking. Great for growing in a sunny border and looks lovely when planted with other hot colours. To minimise frost damage, protect the tuberous roots with a cloche or overwinter in a frost-free environment.

    • Garden care: In autumn after the foliage has died back reduce the stems to within 5cm (2in) of the roots. Lay in a tray of soil or compost and over-winter in a frost-free environment until early spring.

Chocolate wonder

A garden favourite but rarely survives winter in the north-west. Happy to re-purchase annually. Crocus plants always in great condition. Grandchildren love the chocolate smell.

Nice plant but not compact

I do love chocolate cosmos, however it say's in the description that this cultivar is meant to be compact however the oneI received was very tall and needs stakes to support. We have used this cultivar at my workplace before and it was compact so I suspect I was sent the regular chocolate cosmos instead of the variety I ordered. I still do like it, however was not what I was expecting so slighty disappointed.

Velvety Chocolate Beauty

A beautiful plant with a wonderful cocoa-scented, dark-chocolate flower. The delivered plants were tiny however, and took a while to establish themselves. I have over-wintered them in my cool greenhouse and they are coming through again this year, so worth buying

Twiners

Take advantage and do some early spring planting, but only on clement days. You can never have too many climbers and twiners, and now is the ideal time to get them in. They take up little ground space, so they’re perfect for smaller plots, and then they g
