How to Plant COSMOS Seeds
Sow seed in cell packs or flats 4-6 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Kept at 70-85° F., germination averages 14-21 days. Can direct sow into prepared seed beds after all danger of frost in rows,
thin to 12-18 inches apart. Less efficient but easier, seeds can be scattered; rake into soil to a depth of 1/16 inch, keep moist.
Comments: Full sun. Tolerates heat, drought, and poor soil. More flowers with moderate water in soils of average fertility. Excellent cut flower (7-10 days) when blooms are cut as petals unfold, flowers will fully open in vase. Cosmos plants attract birds and butterflies and will usually self-sow.
