Thanks Rachel, 😊 they are still alive, cosmos still has plenty of flowers, but dahlia just runout of buds. Bit worried foliage of these is still fresh and green 🤔 @rachelbrooks

Thanks Jules @Alvare. Really happy I could help. Quite recommend for the dark foliage and flowers changing colour (from peach-like to pale yellow) 😉

It's been fairly mild so a lot of things seem to be still looking quite fresh! Do you normally take yours out overwinter Robert?

It will be a second winter for dahlia, last one overwintered in my garage and in early spring planted some pansies around it to protect from (unexpected) frost. It will be first winter for cosmos, and will try to do same... Fingers crossed 👍@rachelbrooks

@gjones thank you, they are really lovely, even darker in the colour than the picture shows. Unfortunately / apparently they are sterile so you will probably have to get the ready plant... worth the money 👌👍😉
