How To Grow Your Cosmos Flower
Not only are these flowers great for bringing color to your garden but they’re great as cut flowers to be brought into your home as a bouquet in a flower arrangement to brighten your living room, dining room or kitchen. These great flowers can last for 7 - 10 days.
Cosmos love to be planted in full sun so pick a good spot in your garden that stays sunny all day. This will ensure your seeds to sprout faster being exposed to the warmth of the sun which they love so much.
Don’t dig holes to put your seeds in, turn up your soil making
sure its been broken up , smooth it out with your hands sprinkle your seeds then cover with a light layer of soil no more than 1/4 inch.
Cosmos is drought tolerant, and even though it doesn’t want much water this doesn’t stop it from producing an abundant amount of flowers to fill your garden and with less water than most other annuals.
Over caring for your plant can do damage so be careful not to over fertilizer or to over water your plants, they actually like the soil to be dried out until you water them again and too much fertilizer will reduce the amount of flowers it produces.
The best time to plant your seeds is in March for a spring full of brightly colored flowers to enjoy but you can also plant them later on during the summer around June so that you can get more flowers that will flower until the first frost.
Another great thing about the cosmos flowers is that they rarely ever attract garden pest which gives you another reason to grow these all most non existent care flowers.
