    Each flower emerges from bud a deep, velvety red, but as they age, the colour lightens gradually to a rich rose. Therefore when in full bloom the overall effect is very pretty, displaying all the tonal variations of the flowers. Easy and undemanding annuals that will flower right up until the first frosts if they are dead-headed regularly, their flowers can be added to the posies too.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5 - 7cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden once all chance of frost has passed.

I bought these Cosmos for the first,time this summer and I was thrilled with them. I grew them in large stone throughout on the terrace and I had good colour from late May till late August when other salvias took over. will repeat them. A particularly delicate shade of dark pink/red.

There is still plenty of time to raise hardier annuals from seeds sown now and these include cosmos, zinnias and marigolds. However it's often easier to opt for ready-grown plugs of these, as well as the more-tender begonias petunias, antirrhinums and ni
