Sowing, Seeds, Planting Zinnias are best sown April-May under cover in modules or gutters to avoid root disturbance. Place somewhere warm and keep moist until germination occurs, usually within a week. Harden off before planting out after the frosts, once roots have filled their individual modules. Pinch out tips as you plant. Direct sow late May-June, zinnias hate cold nights.:
Care Tips Water once a week and stake plants individually - if they collapse over, they’ll never grow or flower as well as when vertically supported. Zinnias have a tendency to botrytis, especially during damp and cool weather so it is important to ensure good air circulation around plants and tidy up any dead or dying leaves and plant material. Picking or deadheading is necessary to prolong blooming and encourage branching.
Flowering July - first frosts, 12-14 weeks from sowing.
Vase Life 7 days. Strip bottom leaves.
Harvesting Flower production: 3 months.

Seedlings grew well, but as suggested on the seed packet, they didn't like being transplanted out into the garden from a seed tray. When I transplanted four plants into a large container, they did well and are currently flowering.

These great little flowers have thrived despite the very hot summer and my general neglect.
