Cosmos

We always plant Sensation Cosmos in the same bed.

Today, the first one bloomed, about a month later than usual! There are some more buds but still not a lot. I have fertilized them twice recently with high-phosphorus fertilizer which is supposed to promote blooming. Our cherry tomatoes were very late too, but there are huge amounts now. The Bright Lights Cosmos in a nearby bed still have no buds.
