Funny story with this one, I had planted the seeds in the small plastic pot (Chinese take away, to be exact). Didn’t name it, didn’t keep the tag. I had no idea what they were when seedlings arrived. If it could get more confusing, the same plastic pot also had marigold seedlings.
JUST cover the seeds…don’t bury the little gems like they are Diamonds 🙂
Well this is how the seedlings look like. UST cover the seeds…don’t bury the little gems like they are pirate booty.
Cosmos are prized for their abundant, silky petal flowers and their unflappable, easy-care nature in the garden. When I say easy, I mean easy.. I had forgotten to water this plant so many many times. Which means it is heat tolerant too.
Cosmos are simple and inexpensive to grow from seeds. Plant them in full sun (in very hot regions, cosmos can take afternoon shade) and give them protection from strong winds. (I didn’t give them any protection) And they survived rain and storm of Mumbai. 😉
Cosmos tolerates a wide range of soil types, including poor soil.
After few weeks 🙂
Tip to seed – Just cover the seeds, don’t bury them like Diamonds 😉
Cosmos will attract a myriad of butterflies and is also self-sowing so don’t be surprised if more pop up in odd places the following year. It truly is one of the easiest and most rewarding annuals to grow and nowadays there are lots of varieties to choose from. Mine are called Purity. 🙂
In another month –
And then flower!!!
After seeing them, I realized. They are COSMOS 🙂
I shifted them to a relatively big Pot.
DO you know, Cosmos, which comes from the Greek word kosmos, meaning “beautiful.”
