How to Plant
Start zinnia seeds early indoors for transplanting outdoors about 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date (see Starting Annual Flowers Indoors). In warmer climates, sow seeds directly into planting areas and cover lightly with soil. Water thoroughly and thin to 6 to 12 inches apart after seedlings have sprouted.
As a full sunflower that likes warm weather, zinnias need the air and soil to be warmed to the 70s F to germinate and begin to thrive. Unfortunately, they also dislike being transplanted. That doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of the growing season, though. You still have a choice between starting zinnia seeds indoors or sowing seeds directly outdoors.
If you want full, bushy zinnia plants, pinch the top of the stems off of young plants. If you want to encourage tall zinnias, stake the largest so they don’t flop over.
“Harvesting” zinnias as cut flowers will also encourage full growth, telling the zinnia to keep producing blooms until some can go to seed. Cut the stems above leave or bud nodes and the stems will keep growing and producing new blooms.
All seeds will come in a resealable plastic zip lock bag with a label featuring a color photo of the plant, planting instructions, & details such as height, spacing, & light requirements for easy growing. If stored properly, your seeds can last for years! All seed packs contain fresh, 100% true named seeds - there are no fillers or other weeds or seeds mixed in. Most have been harvested by hand, & all test at an exceptionally high germination rate.
Please stored in a cool, dry place
