  • Lets talk about them

    ...

     

    Zinnia's are an absolute must in any cut garden. 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.

     

     

  • 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.

     

    Annual

  • 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.
