How to Plant Cosmos Seeds

Sow Cosmos 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: Scatter seeds. Rake seeds into soil and keep area moist until germination.

Growing Cosmos: Full sun. Tolerates heat, drought, and poor soil. More flowers with moderate water in soils of average fertility. Excellent cut flower, will last 7-10 days when blooms are cut as petals unfold, will fully open in vase. Cosmos plants attract birds and butterflies and usually self-sow.
