The life of the cosmos patch

On top of doing the national collection of cosmos in containers (bins) I decided to grow some in a more naturalistic mass planting. Today in the heat I decided it was time to put the bed to bed so to speak.

That involved s trimming it back, then mowing it over to mulch it, I think I will spread hay (I’d rather have straw) over it to suppress any future weeds, and start again next year. All in all in think the bed was a great success, Thousands of flowers from the plants. The bees loved it, and then some great seeds collected.
