Usually I plant cosmos from seed but this year I purchased six packs of Sonata Cosmos and transplanted. Most of them have their first flower bud and some have opened but they are only about 4-5" tall. Should I pop their heads off? I usually pinch marigolds and some other annuals to make them bush out but not sure about the cosmos.
