Top Tip: Sow Cosmos Seeds

Cosmos are tall airy plants with feathery foliage and a continuous display of white or pink summer flowers. Despite their delicate appearance, they are very easy to grow from seed, and one packet will give you sufficient plants to fill five or six containers. Simply follow the instructions for sowing large seeds, and the seedlings should appear within a few days. Cosmos are not hardy, and must be kept inside until the risk of frost has passed. Deadhead faded flowers regularly.
