  • Lets talk about them



    Zinnia Benarys Giants arean 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.


    Space: 20-30cm


    Height: 75cm


    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.
