Hello @zigstarre and welcome to the forum. Cosmos are annual flowers, and the best way to grow them is to sow the seeds in the springtime in a prepared patch of ground. They are quite easy from seed, and prefer to be in the sun. They are happy in just about any soil, even if it`s poor. Sow the seed thinly and try to put them in lines so you can work out where they are as they germinate, it makes weeding a lot easier :)
