They have been potted up Waddy ... I need to decide where to plant them! OH just raised his eyebrows when I told him that!

Lol! I wonder why?!

Love these Shirley, and so easy from cuttings :)

That's just what I want to hear Sheila! No gardening this week as we have been stripping wallpaper from the lounge walls ... hateful job. As OH will be going to a match tomorrow I have allotted the day to being in the garden. Surprising how much needs dead-heading .....

Yes - I’ve been deadheading like there’s no tomorrow, and am so tired of it. Maybe I won’t grow Cosmos next year (the worst culprit!).

Despite how pretty Cosmos are they DO need constant dead-heading don't they Sheila? I got the shears and loppers out to cut back some shrubs that had grown too tall. There is a Holly bush I would love to make into a 'Lollipop' shape so have started on that. Hopefully I haven't cut too much off ...

Good luck Shirley . . . I'm a danger to myself and my plants when I have those shears in my hand!

That did make me smile Sheila! ... :o)))

We took ours out in the end it became enormous.....pretty though!

Oh don't tell me that Dotty! Still undecided as to where to place this ... methinks it needs a big space now.

So glad that someone else has found the dead heading of cosmos quite a chore!!
What needy little flowers they are but oh so pretty!
The comments made me smile!

Sorry Shirley, you can always replace with the cutting when it becomes too large!

Chris, that is so true about the Cosmos. The white ones seem to be the worse for needing dead-heading so I shall stick with pink next year!

Dotty, good idea. Change in the weather today, grey and breezy here ... :o(
