Cosmos ‘Chocamocha’ is generally grown as an annual but in very mild areas it may be perennial. It can be over-wintered if grown in containers and kept in frost free conditions. Keep the compost barely moist during the winter months. Plants should be watered freely as they come back into growth the following spring, and moved outside after all risk of frost has passed. Alternatively, lift the tubers before first frosts and store in trays of barely moist peat. Keep them somewhere cool but frost-free over winter.

Seeds and garden supplies will normally be delivered within the time period stated against each product as detailed above.
