How to Grow:

One of the easiest annuals to start from seed and not too cold sensitive. Cosmos like moist but well drained conditions.

Sow one seed per cell in early Spring, into a 40 cell tray or sow 5 seeds to a 9cm pot. Cosmos are tolerant of ‘pricking out’.

Seeds will benefit from ‘a bit of warmth’ to germinate.

Plant 30cm apart after the last frost.

Cosmos will continue to open and grow in the vase giving arrangements a magical feel.
