Cosmos are amazing. Beautiful and elegant and yet so easy to grow and versatile.
These seashell lovelies have pastel-hued fluted petals, each resembling a dainty seashell.
Cosmos makes a wonderful cut flower, they are one of the most productive cut flowers you can grow and have gorgeous ferny foliage. They last well in a vase and the bees and other pollinating insects find them irresistible.
Plant Care Tips
Sow from April indoors to plant out after the last frosts or you can sow them directly where they are to grow in May.
I like to sow them in April into trays of moist compost 0.5cm deep. Keep them in a warm place (15-20 degrees) and they’ll appear in 14-21 days
Transplant to a pot once large enough to handle and grow in cooler but not cold conditions. Acclimatise the plants before planting out when all risk of frost has passed.
They will need staking if the site is exposed.
Likes full sun or light shade.
Keep cutting to encourage repeat flowering and they will bloom from July to October. When deadheading cut the stem back to just above a leaf node to encourage more flowers.

Let customers speak for us
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt
Quickly dispatched and delivered. Arrived safely. Nicely labelled clearly with instructions on how to sow. Can’t go wrong. Would definitely order from again.

Looking forward to sowing these seeds soon.
Top quality seeds and so beautifully presented - I bought them for myself but it was like receiving a gorgeous gift!
Great service, prompt delivery and beautifully packaged. It was for a gift so not tried them but they look lovely.
I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
I was so pleased to receive this box of seeds, beautifully presented with a lovely little dried flower to add a special touch, thank you, can’t wait to get started on sowing them .
I can’t rate these seeds highly enough! Germination was super fast and baby plants are lovely and strong. Looking forward to a flower filled 2023 , and will definitely be ordering lots more goodies from Bbcg x
