Cosmos

Cosmos:

This is a flower that is new to the homestead. We have brought it in to increase pollinators.

To Plant:

We started these in the greenhouse until they were about 3 inches tall then moved them out. They can be direct sowed, either in rows or spread like grass seed and raked in.

Harvesting:

Harvesting is simple if you chose, simply pick the flower. Leaving them to grow in the garden is a better choice though as they draw in the pollinators.

Notes:

These are so very new to us I will have more info as we gain experience with them.
