    Just keep dead-heading them and they'll keep going.
    A feed of tomato fert every 10 days or so will help too

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    They are tender perennials Aym and will often come again after a mild winter.  Some are very tender though and will only last the summer in this country (they are native to south Africa.)

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Osteospermums are really easy to propagate from cuttings. Take them any time from a non flowering shoot, keep them frost free over winter and they romp away again the following year.
