You won't be able to resist this showy new Cosmos in your summer borders. 'Capriola' carries plenty of bright, two-tone flowers, which are produced on branching plants all summer long. Easy to grow from seed this stunning cosmos is good for beds, borders and large patio containers. Height 120cm (47"). Spread: 60cm (24").


1 packet (30 cosmos seeds) (60228)

Start off in a seed tray indoors and plant out in borders. Fill a seed tray with good, free-draining, damp, seed compost. Sow seed on the surface of the compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of dry vermiculite or finely sieved compost. Place the seed and tray in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and keep at around 20-25C (68-77F) until the seeds germinate. This will take about 7-14 days. Don’t exclude light as this helps germination.

When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm (3") pots or multi-cell trays. Before planting out, acclimatise the plants to cooler conditions by putting them outside for a few hours a day for a few weeks. Plant out when all risk of frost has gone about 45cm (18") apart.

When growing Cosmos plants, water regularly until they are fully established. Deadhead faded Cosmos flowers regularly to encourage more blooms to be produced throughout the summer.
