Sowing advice
For best results sow zinnia where they are to flower (they like a sunny, sheltered position and don’t like to be moved) from the end of October to the end of November when the soil is warming up. 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. When large enough to handle thin to 25cm spacing.
They can also be sown indoors Sep-Oct into seed compost at temp. 15-25°C. Do not exclude light. 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.
