Cosmos never fails to perform and this delightful mix features large blooms in a mix of pure white, rose-pink and velvety-red. The well-branched plants have pretty ferny foliage and flowers bloom earlier than most Cosmos.
A versatile plant that will look good in any planting scheme.

How to Guide
Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and lightly cover them with a little more compost. Place in warmth 15-20C (60-70F), and keep moist.
Sowing Distance20cm / 8in
Potting on/Thining Out
Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from bright sun. When large enough to handle transplant 5cm (2in) apart into trays of potting compost.
Hardening Off/Planting Out
Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out when danger of frost has passed. Allow 20cm (8in) between plants.
