Seeds to sow in September

Sow Hardy Annuals outdoors in September so your new plants can produce good foliage and roots before it becomes too cold. You’ll always get the strongest plants with most flowers by sowing early like this and you’ll save precious time in spring too. Besides, it’s so easy to scatter a few seeds now and just let them get on with it!

September is a great time to sow Wild Flowers. The soil is warm and seeds germinate fast producing lovely healthy plants before winter sets in. British wildflowers are quite hardy and will survive the worst of our winter weather. As soon as temperatures warm up in spring they’ll start producing more shoots and leaves ready for flowering in early summer. Buy them individually or in collections for specific areas of your garden.

There are lots of Perennial Flowers that can be sown in September. They are easy to grow and produce flowers year after year. Perennials give you lots of flowers for cutting and your garden wildlife plenty of food and places to hide and overwinter.

Product Details

Cosmos 'Double Click Cranberries' Seeds

Cosmos Double Click Cranberries is a lovely new plant that will grow up to 60-90cm/2-3 feet tall so it’s brilliant in the middle of your borders and great for your cut flower patch. It has feathery apple green foliage and large fully double and semi-double daisy-like flowers in the most gorgeous cranberry red shades.

Cosmos are half hardy annuals from Mexico and South America. Over the years they have become classic English cottage garden plants because they flower all summer and go on flowering right up until the first frosts.

Cosmos flowers are brilliant for cutting. They will last a week in fresh water. The more flowers you cut the more the plants produce. These are amazingly productive plants and what's more our bees and butterflies love Cosmos too!

Sow SeedsSow under cover in spring. Lightly cover with a fine layer of compost or vermiculite... Cosmos need light to germinate. Grow seedlings on then plant out your young plants after the last frosts. Direct sow seed in flowering positions from May onwards.
Thin/Plant OutCosmos need plenty of space to develop and grow. Allow about 45cm/18 inches between plants. Seedlings transplant well so you could do what I do and grow a few in large pots to fill any gaps in your planting schemes.
Conditions RequiredGrow in full sun in moist but well drained soil. Provide support such as pea and bean netting stretched horizontally. When the young plants reach 20cm/8 inches tall pinch out the tips to encourage side shoots to develop.
Flower ProductionCosmos takes around 14 weeks to flower from a spring sowing. Flowers are produced from June until the first frosts in October. Keep cutting and dead heading to produce more flowers.
PickingCut Cosmos flowers when it’s cool… early in the morning or in the evening and pop them straight into a tall bucket of fresh water. Cosmos blooms will last 7 – 10 days in a vase.
Planting CombinationsCosmos Double Click combines beautifully with other tall plants such as
Ammi, Nicotiana Whisper, Cleome and Larkspur.
