EASIEST TO PLANT OUTDOORS

Sow seeds in full sun in well-worked soil. For container sowing, use fresh potting mix. Space seeds 3 inches apart, cover about 1/2 inch deep and gently firm soil. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination. When seedlings are several inches tall, thin to final spacing: for containers, space plants 4 inches apart; in garden beds, space 8 inches apart.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Several weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 1 to 2 inches apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep warm and moist and provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outdoors. Transplant carefully before plants get too large. For containers, be sure to space plants 4 inches apart, so roots have room to grow and spread.

  

GROWING NOTES

For container planting, use pots at least 12 inches in diameter and 12 inches deep. These carefree 8 to 12 inch tall zinnias perform well in hot and sunny conditions. Water regularly and consistently. Support plants' rapid growth by feeding with a well-balanced fertilizer every few weeks. Thin young seedlings to final spacing before too large. Remove spent flowers often to encourage new blooms.
