Cosmos in bud - at last!
Has anyone else had problems with their cosmos not flowering this year? I grew them as usual from seed (sonata mixed) in April, one flowered profusely from July, but all the others grew taller and taller without the sign of a bud even. Now they are about 5 feet tall and are finally budding up! The soil is the same as usual, not overly rich, so why is there such lush green growth but no flowers? I have seen similar rampant flowerless monsters in gardens nearby. So is it the weather? Or the seed?
