How to Grow

Seed can be sown indoors 6 to 10 weeks before transplanting into garden soil. All zinnias prefer warm soil and growing conditions, planting outdoors in cold soil may be detrimental to plant growth. Provide maximum sunlight. In warmer southern locations, seed could be sown directly into prepared garden soil or containers. About 60-65 days from sowing seed to first flower.
