I love the flowers, by the way I have a new color that I will put on this posting, but they get so tall they are trying to break over. Is there anything that I can do to maybe shorten the plant somehow next spring? I have read on the Cosmos pages that they do reseed, I was hoping that I could do something in the spring to make the plants a little shorter. I have tied them to the lattice and the tallest one is over 6 ft. tall. When they finally flower they are worth the wait and the aggrevation that I had. I apprieciate all the help you gardeners have given me, you have been so helpful, and I don't think I could have gotten as far as I have without your help. Thanks again.
