So it was that I planted out ;
- Half a dozen Holly-Hocks, they can grow very tall given the right conditions and time;
- Double the number of Cosmos seedlings I reckoned I had suitable space for;
- Too many Livingston Daisies to count, (they were bunched up);
- Some Petunias;
- An unknown... Penstemons.

The planting advice, sun/shade etc went by the board, these seedlings were going to have to take their chances wherever there was a space. I did try and give them the advised spacing and some of them seem to require quite a lot. It is very tempting to enlarge flower beds and yes, I admit it, I did create a small additional area in which I planted Cosmos, Penstemons and two of the Holly-Hocks. That's it now, no more new spaces.

|New small plant patch-established Mimula, three Cosmos, Petunias & Penstemons. Two small Holly Hocks...maybe for next year.|
