Basic Supplies for Growing Cosmos
Before we get started learning all about growing cosmos, you should know there are a few basic supplies you should have on hand:
1. ) Lots and Lots of cow manure. You can buy the non-smelly composted bags, 40 lbs worth for a buck at most large gardening supply centers. I have always found this essential to improve the soil and maintain its health. It is also important in attracting earthworms, which are vital to a rich, soft soil.
3.) Beer – should be ice cold and refreshing. No, no….now this isn’t for the slugs. I have always heard this will atract them and they drown while drinking it. Now that is a waste of good brew and is reserved for the gardener.
4.) Good, comfy yard chair/lounge. You’ll need one of these for those rest breaks when you sip your beer and admire your handy work.
