Zinnia Benarys giant white seeds - Giant white blooms.
Approx 15 Seeds
Lets talk about them
Zinnia Benarys Giants are an absolute must in any cut garden. One of the largest zinnias available, yet super Easy to grow, low maintenance and heat tolerant. A true cut and come again flower, which will grace you with blooms all summer long, right up to the first frost. A high percentage of these flowers are double.
How to make these beauties grow
Sow: Late spring. 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Can direct sow after last frost.
How: sow to 3mm deep. Zinnia doesn't like being transplanted - soil blocking recommended if not direct sowing. Stressed plants are more likely to produce single blooms.
Where: Full Sun
Days to Maturity: 75-90 days
Pick: Give it a wiggle, if its floppy it's not ready to be picked.
Notes From The Garden
Nip out the initial bud to encourage branching and bloom production. Although I don't find it necessary as Zinnia are so productive anyway.
Early stems can be short but elongate as the summer progresses. 1st flowers are like pancakes, it takes a few blooms to really get into their stride.
Zinnias have a fabulous vase life, but make the water dirty quickly, so change daily if possible.
