How to Plant Cosmos Seeds

Sow cosmos seeds in cell packs or flats, 4-6 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Kept at 70-85° F., germination is in 14-21 days. Can direct sow cosmos into prepared seed beds in rows, after all danger of frost. Thin seedlings to 12-18 inches apart. A less efficient but easier method of sowing cosmos: scatter seeds. Rake seeds into soil, keep area moist until germination.

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