Thanks for the link - those are beautiful. I am going shopping today for some new Hummingbird Feeders so will look for some of these.

Have a Blessed Day. Sunny

I have always planted the SEED right in the ground. I use to work in a greenhouse what would start the seed in pots and they NEVER were as nice as the ones I stick right in the ground.
There are 100's of different varieties of cosmos! CHECK THEM OUT at your favorite seed company. I like : www.tmseeds.com/ilist/group/cosmos.h

On our farm, we even dry our own heirloom cosmos and use the seed from year to year!

Hope this helps...


IT all begins with YOU..... Plant the seeds and get growing healthy!

Mine have done pretty well. I've already put them into the garden. I kept them in pretty high sun after they sprouted which may have helped. I've heard stretching is related to not getting enough light. Good luck!

Does anyone have any ideas/advice when seeding cosmos on how to get them to be NOT so stretchy, tall when they are babies?? They are horrible to transplant when they are like this.

Thanks!
