Talkback: 10 cosmos to grow

Posted: 06/09/2015 at 16:01

For really impressive cosmos at this time of year, keep some plants back and grow large in 3 litre pots.  Pinch regularly.  Plant out in mid summer and you will have cosmos, as I have, about 4 to 5' tall.  tall cosmos flowers at this time create quite a feature.

Pollination might be the issue AEE.  What varieties do you have?  Or do you grow just one? 

mulching is better I think.  Do this is in autumn and apply organic fish blood and early spring.

Whatever you do Logan go for a stringless vest,,,,,,,er variety .  

I find the white flowered to be best flavoured and birds seem to leave them alone.
