    I have whatever was cheap or reduced.

    Latest was box plants 50p each (which I will eventually shape into fetching models of dragons/flying birds/elephants/dogs........not ), marigolds 1 for tray and pansies 1.79 for loads in a tray.

    Lovely, thanks folks! Everyone else on the site seems to grow cosmos like it's a rule... they look gorgeous. I usually do marigolds, sunflowers and sweet peas, just wanted a bit more this year.
