Planting Instructions:

TO PLANT DIRECTLY OUTDOORS

Sow seeds 1/2 inch deep, 1 to 2 inches apart in a sunny location in well-worked garden soil once danger of frost is past. Keep seed bed evenly moist; seedlings emerge in 7 to 10 days. Thin established seedlings to a final spacing of 8 inches apart, so plants have room to mature. Keep well weeded and watered while plants are young; mature cosmos can handle hot and dry conditions, but bloom longest if regularly watered.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix, 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost. Cover 1/2 inch deep, keep moist and provide a good light source until ready to go outside. Plant outdoors 8 inches apart once weather warms up, after gradually acclimating seedlings to outdoor conditions.

 

GROWING NOTES

Cutting stems of flowers regularly actually prolongs the blooming season. Stunning Rose Bon Bon makes beautiful and long-lasting bouquets and pairs easily with other garden flowers.
