About me

Retired. Keen Photographer and Gardener
I was born surrounded by chicken and agriculture.
My family had a market-garden
and produced many fine crops throughout the year.
Mother was the expert on flowers and I suppose, from them, I have always taken an interest in reaping from seeds and cuttings.

I collect Cosmos seed and planted some this year which produced the following magnificant blooms. Anyone able to identify the names please?
I understand that there are double cosmos, if that is so, where can I obtain seed?
