Reviewed 15th August 2018 by Polly Newton

I bought these as seedlings - they were great when they first started flowering in June and the flowers are really pretty, however since then the plants have dwindled to nothing and there have only been one or two flowers over the last month or so. Much much less successful than other cosmos seedlings I purchased at the same time.
