why can't I grow cosmos???
I know this is probably the silliest question ever to be on here but I have tried for the past 3 years to grow cosmos from seed and cannot. Some years they have started off fine and then died and more often, I can't even get them to sprout. Such a silly thing but I love those little flowers and would love to grow them for my kids.
I have tried good soil, poor soil, lots of water, hardly any water, average water, full sun, part sun, etc. For something that is supposed to be so easy, I sure am having a heck of a time!
Any thoughts? Is it one of those things that just doesn't grow well in parts of Florida? I am on the Central East Coast... zone 9b-ish. My favorite variety is Sensation but I've also tried the orange ones as well.
Any help would be much appreciated!!!
