    I remember these from my childhood. I also know some ‘cows’ who frequent flowerbeds ;) I’ve decided I want more cutting flowers next year so I’m planning a bed and I might just be tempted to try Larkspur. I like flowers with a story. Then again, given their waywardness i might just have them in an unruly border.

    I’ve never grown larkspur or tithonia, but you make it all sound so easy so think I will give them both a go, especially as I now have a cutting garden with a few gaps in it (some of my flowers sown as seed didn’t come up). Obviously the tithonia will have to wait till next spring, but I have some larkspur seeds that came free from Amateur Gardening, so if they don’t come up, I won’t have lost anything and can try again next year. Do you save any seeds to resow?
