How to Grow Zinnias:
It is best to grow zinnia from seed, as they do not like to be transplanted. From seed, they will grow very quickly in the right conditions. Do not seed until the last frost has passed. Choosing a location that gets full sun is essential. Zinnias are adaptable, but the ideal soil is nice and fertile, humus-rich, and well-drained. Soil pH should be between 5.5 and 7.5. If soil is amended with compost, the flowers will grow more quickly.
Sow zinnia seeds only ¼-inch deep. Germination takes abou 4 to 7 days.
When seedlings reach three inches tall, thin them so that they’re 6 to 18 inches apart to maximize air circulation. Sow in succession for a longer flowering display.
