Planting Instructions:

EASIEST TO PLANT OUTDOORS

After danger of frost is past, sow seeds in full sun in well worked soil. For container sowing, use fresh potting mix. Space seeds 2-3 inches apart, cover about 1/2 inch deep and gently firm soil. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination. When seedlings are several inches tall, thin to final spacing: For Containers, space plants 4 inches apart; In Garden Beds, space 8 inches apart.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS


Several weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 2 inches apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep warm and moist and provide a strong light source until ready to plant outdoors. Transplant carefully before plants get too large. Space plants carefully, so roots have room to grow and spread.

 

GROWING NOTES

For container planting, use pots at least 12 inches in diameter and 12 inches deep. These carefree 8 to 12 inch tall zinnias perform well in hot and sunny conditions. Water regularly and consistently. Support plants’ rapid growth by feeding with a well-balanced fertilizer every few weeks. Thin young seedlings to final spacing before too large. Remove spent flowers often to encourage new blooms.
