How to Grow:

 

Sowing:

Transplant (recommended) - Sow into 72-cell flats, or preferred seedling container, 4 weeks before last frost. Cover seeds. A heat mat will help maintain an accurate temperature. Lower temperatures will result in slower germination: 5-7 days at 70-75°F (21-24°C). Harden off and transplant out after last frost. Do not allow plants to become root bound and avoid disturbing roots; transplant shock or other stress events may cause double-flowering varieties to produce single blooms for a period following stress.

 

Direct seed - After last frost, sow 1/4" deep. Succession-sow/plant every two weeks for prolonged yields of high-quality stems. Pinching of initial bud or bloom and subsequent deadheading is recommended to encourage strong branching and bloom production.

 

 

Harvesting:
Before completely open. Stem is firm from point of cut to just below the bloom.

Check your stem before cutting by shaking gently. Stem must be stiff and  erect to harvest. If flower is bending, neck is soft, it is not ready for cutting, will wilt.

 

Vase life: long vase live , up yo 7-14 days

 

If flower preservative is added to the water, zinnias should last 7-10 days in the vase.
