Cosmos Sonata is the perfect flower for a awkward bed with stubborn shallow and poor soil. It naturally thrives in poor soils given a hot sunny site and withstands drought well.

The plants arrived in a poor state and damaged. All bar 2 have subsequently died. I complained but have had no apology. Events were overtaken by a general communication saying that the whole batch of cosmos were sub standard and would be resown, but these will not be available until mid-June. I remain to see if they will catch up as claimed. The general communication has been confused and duplicated. The whole thing has not been well handled.
