Hi very interested in all the chat about the cosmos. Have been planting them for years with mixed success. I think the best thing to do is to put them in the earth as soon in spring as you think the frost is finished. Some years I found that they came to a particular point in the compost and then they started to die on me. If I managed to get them into the earth at that point they would generally grow without a problem. What I am trying to say is that I think they prefer to seed where they will finally flower as opposed to being transplanted.
