How to Grow
Pot up cosmos plants and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise cosmos plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting out in beds, borders and containers. Choose a position in full sun on any moist, well drained soil.
More Info
When growing Cosmos plants, water regularly until they are fully established. Deadhead faded Cosmos flowers regularly to encourage more blooms to be produced throughout the summer.
