Be sure to read ‘Growing Great Zinnias’ by Lisa Mason Ziegler.

Planting Tips:
  • Full sun.
  • 28-32"H.
  • Warm-season annual.
  • Start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before planting date or cast seeds directly in the garden.  Cover seed with ¼” of soil; allow 2-7 days to germinate. Space 9-12” apart in the garden, grows to 28” tall. Pinch when 8" tall to establish a more robust branching plant. 75-90 days to bloom.
Harvest Tips:
  • Harvest when flowers are fully open, they will not open any further after cut.
  • Make the first harvest cut above the bottom two side shoots, this establishes a branching habit for the season.
  • Make future cuts at the base of the stem.
  • Excellent cut flower or in the landscape, attracts butterflies, birds, hummingbirds, and beneficial bugs, and drought tolerant.
  • Keep the Blooms Coming: Harvest blooms for cut flowers just as the little yellow flowers (stamens) develop in the center. Make the harvest cut at the base of the stem.

    have only been growing them a couple of years and love them. I have only bought the 25cent seed packet @ local dollar store. Then got some my Mom had harvested. I am a wanna be flower farmer, right now enjoying them in my landscape
