Thanks Karen and Homebird, I can't really take the credit for the lillies. ...... as this is Wendy's department .... Remember 1 of the 117 pots/ troughs and hanging baskets ... lol.

Thanks Jane. There are some more cosmos in a border just to the left of the photo. They have grown to a height of 3ft tall and full of flowers. They look tremendous.

I love the foliage and the flowers of the Cosmos. I forgot to buy seed for this year.

Homebird/Cosmosjane, if you can tell me what to do and when, with the dead flower heads, I can post a few down to you, if you would like me to.

That's very good of you Alan. I let the flower buds dry out and turn brown then you can pull the seed heads off and they break up releasing the flat seed. I forgot to collect some last year as I only had a few plants. The seeds had got wet in the greenhouse the winter before and weren't fit to sow.

I havent ever collected the seeds..... will do that this year. Thanks for the tip Homebird!

I'll give it a go Homebird and let you know how I get on.
