Cosmos - Daydream
This variety features flowers in palest pink with a deep pink centre with a semi-dwarf habit making it a unique and delicate addition to Cosmos. It is very early flowering and though the flowers are slightly smaller, they are freely produced over a long period and self-cleaning, excellent for cutting and bedding. Height: 90cm.
Sow 3mm deep in spring at 21-24C in a good seed compost. Keep soil damp but not wet, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 5-10 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 6cm apart in a sunny spot on light well drained soil.
