Planting & Harvesting

Seed Depth: 1/4″ (6mm)

Spacing: 2″ (5cm)

Sprouts In: 5-8 days

Thinning: 12″ (30cm)

Direct sow outdoors after all danger of frost in well-drained soil, keeping surface moist until germination. Full sun will yield a more yellow tone while providing partial shade (particularly in hot climates) gives a deeper lime color. May be started indoors 6-8 weeks prior to last frost and transplanted for earlier blooms.

Remove faded flowers to encourage more blossoms. Zinnias can be susceptible to mildew in humid or wet climates. Try to keep foliage dry by watering at the base of the plant, especially at night.
