I have grown lots of Cosmos from seed, can't remember when I started them but was possibly March time. Anyway, I heard you should pinch off the tops, so I did, but am now concerned because I have no flower buds. I think I might not have pinched out correctly. Some plants are quite bushy others are a bit leggy but not one bud. Does anyone have any advice please?
Give it a bit more time Jo Nutt, I'm growing them as well and have only noticed flower buds this past week or so, I didn't pinch mine out though, they do produce flowers from the side shoots so you should be ok.
Thank you PaulaH will keep my fingers crossed
I pinched mine out and no flower buds, but other posts on here about freebies from GW mag "Cosmos Purity " same as mine, most saying the same, I think we just have to wait.
