Grown on the farm, we love this incredible pollinator flower that attracts all sorts of insects. The flower is edible and will reseed itself. The original seeds were bought from Rare Seeds, Missouri. I just could not help myself when I saw how delicate and beautiful they were on the picture and I was really not disappointed by what I saw in my garden. Lovely pastel colours that sway up above many other varieties.
Sow: Direct seed 1 week after last frost in well drained soil ¼’’ deep
Harvest: All season long during flowering. Leave some flower heads for re-seeding
Cosmos plants can withstand heat and drought conditions. The flowers can bloom twice in one season – at the beginning and at the end.
