I've still got one with no buds on too Jane. They're just so big. Think I'm going put them somewhere else next year as they've taken over the bed 😂😂😂 @pelly

The one that opened first has just gone in the brown bin. It was so tall I couldn't keep it staked, I've got up the last 3 mornings and found it on the ground Lexi 😂😃😄

Please can any one give me some advice? This cosmos is about 5ft tall & has only one bud on the very top. As you can see it's like a triffid 😂😂 it towers about my other cosmos. Is it a mutant or is there anything I might have been doing wrong? Thank you 🤔🤔 #helpplease #help #advice #advice-cosmos #cosmos

Some naturally grow that tall with good soil. Have patience will make more blooms.

To enable Bushy growth, you do Prunning at the top. Other reason could be too much Nitrogen in the Soil which is good for top growth and enables plants to go higher and more leaf growth

Hi @lexijane cosmos can grow a heck of a lot with little flower, what growers will tend to do is pinch them back when they are a bit smaller, this tends to bring on the flowers, I do this with mine even if they are not growing tall. Nothing to worry about just gives you some later season interest. 😃
