COSMOS pinching out

staffsmagsstaffsmags Posts: 230

I've planted out my dwarf cosmos and they seem to be doing well.  But I didn't pinch the growing shoots out. Should I have done that, and should I do it now?  I've never grown these and it didn't cross my mind!  Thanks, Mags

    Some people do, and some people dont. If you do you will probably get more branching and more flowers, so I do.

    Consequences, altered cases
    Broken noses, altered faces
    My ego altered, altered egos
    Wherever I go, so does me go

    I do too, and pick the buds off until you have a good sized plant.

    That's 3 of you say to pinch out so I'm sure that's the best advice. That's what I will do today then. Thanks, Mags
