Cosmos - A Pretty Sight

My purchase last year of "fancy cosmos" seeds at Smith & Hawken in Westfield resulted in another very rewarding crop this year. The range goes from scalloped, ruffled, double and picotee and the display is striking.

All the seedheads have been saved in hopes of a major display next year, either on Block 832 or wherever else I may find myself.

Serious gardeners must visit the Westfield shop for special seeds, tools and garden gear. Drive over or hop the No. 59 bus from the corner by City Hall to be let off at Broad and Elm in Westfield. It's a veritable wonderland if you are a fanatic gardener!
