    Hi Ben, thank you for the seeds and gift of cornsuckle seeds. I am new to your website and new to the world of growing from seed, I am really enjoying your website and all the info is great. I have planted some Cosmos Double click, in a propagator and they germinated ever so quickly but are now very spindly and about 3 inches tall. Is this normal? The kids sunflower seeds, which are in a far sunnier position look far healthier! Thanks for any advice :-))

    Hi there … I have loads of cosmos in my poly tunnel .. They
    Are about 4″ tall …a trifle spindly but beginning to
    Fill out. Should I plant them all out ( and give to
    Friends) .. Now or wait a bit? Also do slugs and
    Snails like them? Thx in advance cx

      yes…I should plant them out…but best to acclimatise them…pop them outside during the day and take them in at night…do this for a week. But yes…slugs will munch on them if they get the chance.

    I tried growing these for the first time but mine are tall and not bushy looking as your photo, did you pinch yours out at any stage of growth? I started mine off inside in early April, then moved them to a cold frame and planted into the garden about two weeks ago. They are growing (slowly) but seem to be quite sparse looking?

      I generally don’t pinch mine…but many folk do…so I suggest you give it a try…otherwise just give them some time…it is still early days yet! :)
