    Hi Ben
    Did you sow all of your hardy annuals on the 23 august!! I am planning to be organised this year with both my biennial and hardy annual sowings. Did you over winter your cornflowers outside or were/are they being grown in a poly tunnel. i scattered some of your Ammi last october outside and how have 6′ plants that are just about to flower. they look unrecognisable compared seed sown in spring….
    to All advice welcomed and needed!

    Hi Ben – I am loving your website and your enthusiasm and your general sense of humour!! Hope you don’t mind a quick question: Should I be pinching out the growing tips of my Cornflowers (spring sown – seeds from you!) and also my Cosmos – bought as plugs – which are forming flower buds at 4ins high!.

      Hi Annie, I never pinch cornflowers or Cosmos…they shouldn’t be budding so short though…what variety of Cosmos are they? Both are cut and come again…cut cornflowers above a leaf node and it will produce two more flowers…albeit on shorter stems.
      Cosmos are REALLY easy to grow from seed…you can sow them now…outside…now the frosts are over…and yes…I sell them!! ;)
      Glad you like the site.
      Best wishes

    They are beautiful shots of the Cornflowers – they made me long for summer which seems a long way off at the moment.

      Thanks Elaine…I love photographing the flowers when they arrive…it’s half the fun of the fair. Summer maybe closer than you think! :)
