How to Grow
70 seed/gram. It is preferable to direct seed cosmos in the garden although one can start them inside if desired 4 weeks before planting out. Choose a sunny site with well drained soil and sow the seeds 3-6 mm (1/8-1/4″) deep in mid to late May. Thin to 30-40 cm (12-16″) apart when the seedlings are 5-8 cm (2-3″) tall.
