Green Envy belongs in every flower arranger’s garden! Its unusual vivid chartreuse color sets off brighter summer flowers with style and pizzazz and harmonizes equally well with soft pastels. We had our Dutch growers specially select this semi-double Envy seed for best flower form and color. Easy to grow and quick to bloom, zinnias give more flowers with less effort than other summer annuals, so you can enjoy eye-catching bouquets all summer long.

TO START DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN

Sow seeds in a well-worked seed bed in full sun when danger of frost is past and weather is warm and above 50° F both day and night. Space seeds 2 to 3 inches apart in rows 12 inches apart, cover about 1/2 inch deep and gently firm soil. Keep evenly moist while awaiting germination.


TO START EARLY INDOORS

Four weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 3 inches apart in containers of seed starting mix. Keep warm and moist and provide a strong light source. Feed with 1/2 strength fertilizer every 2 weeks. Just as soon as seedlings have several sets of true leaves, plant outdoors when temperatures stay above 50°F at night.


THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 8 to 10 inches apart when large enough to handle to provide good air circulation and give plants room to mature.


GROWING NOTES

Zinnias grow readily in ordinary garden soil in full sun. For best flowers, thin before seedlings get crowded; adequate spacing and regular even watering help keep zinnias productive and free from mildew. Cut flowers with long stems well back into the plant to keep plants branching low and producing new flowers.
