Plant of the Month 5/12 – Cosmos

Yes, Cosmos are my plant of the month for June! In particular my little ones which are now flowering on the allotment, Sensation Mixed.

Cosmos are part of theĀ Asteraceae family, which includes daisies. They come in a variety of colours and sizes, so there is a variation for everyone!

My Sensation Mixed are fairly small annuals and form pink and white flowers.

I grew them from seed back in February in my propagator and now I am getting actual flowers which I can cut for display in the house!

This variety are half hardy so they aren’t too needy and they seem to have been easy enough to grow. I mean, I’m a novice and I have a good strong crop of them!

I urge everyone to grow some Cosmos! They are stunning and bloomin’ easy to grow! They make cute little displays for the dining table and make you feel super proud that you grew something that lovely!

Do it! Get some Cosmos seeds and grow them šŸ™‚
