TO START DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN

Sow seeds in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun when danger of frost is past and weather is warm and above 50°F (10°C) both day and night. Space seeds 3 inches apart in rows 12 inches apart, cover 1/2 inch deep and gently firm soil. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination.


TO START EARLY INDOORS

One month before last frost, sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 3 inches apart in seed starting mix. Keep warm and moist and provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside when temps rise above 50°F (10°C) day and night.


THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 8-12 inches apart when large enough to handle to give plants room to mature and provide good air circulation.


GROWING NOTES

To ensure sufficient air circulation and abundant blossoms, thin before seedlings get crowded; adequate spacing and regular, even watering helps keep zinnias productive and discourages mildew. Pick when flower blossoms first open and petals are tight for longest vase life. Cut long stems well back into the plant to keep plants branching low and producing best blooms for summer long bouquets.
