Benefits of Cosmos Double Dutch White
It is impossible to have too many pollinators and predator insects in your garden that help manage pests and pollinate your plants. Cosmos flowers attract beneficial insects that pollinate and feed on pest insects, such as lacewings, parasitic wasps, tachinid flies, and hoverflies. There are several species of Cosmos, but Cosmos bipinnatus is the most common species. The plant does not harm children or pets in any way, so growing it around them is safe.
How to sow and care for Cosmos Double Dutch White
You should fill seedling trays with compost. With a piece of lumber or your hand, you can firm up the compost if it is too soft. Seeds should be sown directly on the compost surface, one per cell if possible. In each cell, place a small pinch of seeds, followed by a centimetre-thick layer of compost or vermiculite, moistened with water, drained, and labelled. It can also be covered with a plastic bag or placed in a heated propagator. Planting seeds with two pairs of leaves into separate pots is recommended.
It is not necessary to prepare the soil for Cosmos. In fact, they prefer soil that isn't too rich because rich soil will promote foliage rather than blooms. The soil should drain well as well. Cosmos are tolerant of heat and drought. Cosmos can withstand droughts. Self-seeding is easy.
Occasionally, staking is required for these plants due to their height. You can also support them by planting them against a fence. In addition to over-watering and over-fertilizing, it will produce fewer flowers. Avoid overwatering.
