Sowing advice
Sow outdoors in spring and summer when the soil is warming up. Sow indoors Sep-Oct.
For best results sow zinnia where they are to flower (they like a sunny, sheltered position and don’t like to be moved), but they can also be sown indoors in cell pots.
Outdoors: Sow 3mm deep in drills 30cm apart into well prepared soil that has been raked to a fine tilth. Water regularly. Germination takes 7-14 days.
Indoors and cell pots: Sow into seed raising mix at temp. 15-25°C. Cover with 3mm soil. When large enough to handle transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Acclimatise 10-15 days and plant out after danger of frost has passed.
