SKU ATTKA9983 Categories , , Delivery

Description – The unique pastel colouring of the petals starts out as a soft apricot shade with a pale lavender underside which then fades over time to a creamy yellow. No two blooms are the same, whilst some flowers boast an intriguing mauve ring at their centre.

Sowing – Sow cosmos seed from February to May at a depth of 3mm (1/8in) in a good quality seed compost, and cover the seeds with a very fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) or seal inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp, but not wet.

Growing – When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7cm (3in) pots and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise to outdoor conditions over 7 to 15 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun in any moist, well-drained soil at a distance of 45cm (18in) apart. Pinch out the growing tip of each stem when transplanting to encourage stems to branch and produce more flowers.

Flowers – July to Mid October
