Hi, I must be a complete idiot, because I have managed to put a question about cosmos on three times, have no idea how I've done it, and have no idea how to remove two of them.   Please ignore two of them

    Haha - you've managed to post this twice as well ! Don't be worrying - I'm forever making mistakes on here. On the subject of cosmos - I've never tried with those but I'm sure someone will be able to answer your question . I believe they can self-seed but I just buy a new packet of seed every year as they are one of my favourite flowers.I like the ''seashell'' variety .

  • Thanks Jean Riley, I'm glad I'm not the only one making mistakes.  Several people have mentioned how nice "seashell" cosmos are, so must look out for the seed.

  • glad I am not the only one.

    Somewhere on this site is a post all about keeping cosmos seed - it was really good; It involved tying a ribbon or such around the cosmos you wanted to get the seed from and then wait until the seed head was dry and put  in paper envelopes. Sorry, I can't find it but that is basically the method and that works for other plants too.

  • That 's right, I remember reading it and intend to collect the seed to try next year.  Many thanks.
