Growing Instructions

Direct sow after frost, or sow indoors 4 weeks earlier. Zinnias like heat and well-drained soil. Encourage continued production by removing dead and dying flower heads. Cut flowers do best with long stems and green leaves removed. To save seeds, simply allow flower heads to ripen and dry fully on the plant, then pluck and squeeze in your palm.
