I've fell in love with these soft pink cosmos in my pictorial meadow last summer. Compact and floriferous, Cosmos 'Sonata Pink' is ideal for pots and the front of a border.

Cosmos last 10 days in the vase, produce at least two buckets of cut flowers a week from a 1 x 1m patch and do so from late June until November – so that's nearly fifty buckets of flowers in one season from a small patch. They are impossible to beat.

They have not grown as bushy as promised. I have looked after them but all that potting on was labour intensive without the hoped for result.

Too much excessive packaging and single use plastic for delivery. The plants themselves were fine.

Have been flowering for ages and are the first cosmos that have stayed small in my garden and not grown to 6 feet plus!

They look stunning and have performed well. Although they seem to be flagging a little now, they have been in flower for some time.

They took a long time to grow compared with some others I had bought as plants as well. It has been a difficult growing season for transplanting and growing on and they are now growing well.

I think my balcony may this summer have been TOO hot and directly sunny all day. I watered them carefuuly but they shot up and failed to bush out despite gentle pruning. Could the unusual heat be the cause?

Previous years they have flowered better but it has been difficult with the hot weather to keep the garden at it's best. No reflexion on the plants themselves.

The Cosmos haven't done very well this year - maybe the dry conditions. All very small.
