How Does Your Cosmos Grow?

Gardeners, Plant and Nature lovers can join in every Sunday; visit As the Garden Grows for more information.




 
Miss Sarah, thy plants self-sow,
How doth thy Cosmos grow?
Why, five feet tall
Like my Sunflowers all.
Ok, poetry never was my best subject in school, and I am ripping off a nursery rhyme. My cosmos is about five feet tall, though. Just like my sunflowers.
Happy GTS!

Sue- Thanks! I love cosmos, and have been growing it for years. This year it does seem to have taken longer to bloom.

ronel- Cosmos is easy - scatter seeds around in the fall, and watch them pop up like weeds in the spring/summer. I also save seeds and start them indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date.

Thanks for visiting!
Sarah
