I have some flowering well and 3 clumps of just foliage. Im debating whether to pull those out or wait longer.

Some of mine are all foliage too, but I’m hoping they might produce a flower or two soon 🤞 @DeborahBanks

Well said, Angela! @italydiva I checked mine this afternoon, Deborah, and I spied one or two tiny buds hiding in the foliage so don’t give up on yours yet! @DeborahBanks 😘😘

What is wrong with my #cosmos plants this year? My seed sowing was successful and I’ve ended up with lots of healthy plants dotted around the garden, but only one flower so far! The plants look healthy with lots of lush green foliage, but no flower buds. Where have I gone wrong? Or am I too impatient? 🤔😢 #cosmos-advice #wherearetheflowers #stillwaiting #mygardentoday 💚

Some varieties are later flowering and don't over water them they don't like it it produces more foliage than flowers 😕💓👍

That’s interesting, Keely. The ones that aren’t yet flowering have had far more water than this one, so I’ll follow your advice and see what happens. Thank you 😘😘 @Keely

I learnt it from someone on here last year so I've done same this year and avoided watering n just let nature take its cause have to say loads of buds forming not quite in bloom yet though 😄

Mine are still only about 7" high 😔 It's been a very bad year for my seed sowing, yet the ones I scattered around the garden later in the season than I ought to, have done ok.
