This year is my first time at growing Cosmos 'Seashells', the seedlings have so far grown into healthy sturdy young plants, promising lots of radiant blooms.
at what stage do you plant out & they are big enough not to get eaten..I landed up with just one plant this year...
I love Cosmos, I think they are absolutely gorgeous, I grew some last year and wanting to grow a lot more this year.....they are stunning.
I have a Cosmos in a pot,looks healthy but no sign of a flowering bud,can anyone help with this or am I been impatient?
