When to plant: As long as there is no further threat of frost, zinnias can be planted any time through the end of June. In fact, its a great idea to plant multiple rounds at 2- to 3-week intervals up until the end of June for non-stop blooming into fall. Where to plant: Locate your zinnias in an area that will get at least 6 hours of sun each day and where there is well-draining soil. How to plant: Zinnias are best started from seed and can be sown directly in the garden after the threat of frost has passed. If youd like to get a jump on them and start earlier indoors, try peat pots or other containers that can be planted directly in the ground, as zinnias can be a bit finicky when transplanted. Sow seeds -inch deep and follow spacing directions on seed package. Give them sunshine and water and youll have seedlings popping up in 4 to 7 days. Thin the seedlings to spacing of 6 to 18 inches (depending on variety) by snipping at the soil line with scissors. (Tip: Pulling out seedlings can disturb the roots of those left behind.) Zinnias grow quickly and youll have beautiful bright blooms in about 60 days. CARE Pruning: For taller varieties that youd like to use for cut flowers, Floret Flower Farms recommends snipping out the center flower when the plants are about 18 inches tall, and although it feels pretty counterintuitive at the time, it will encourage plants to begin branching low and ultimately produce much longer stems. Spent blooms should be deadheaded to encourage and prolong further flowering. Soil: While zinnias arent particularly picky about their soil, they do prefer it to be fertile, humus-rich, well-drained and with a pH of 5.5 to 7.5. Amendments & Fertilizer: Add compost to the area where zinnias will be planted to enrich the soil. An occasional light dose of a well-balanced fertilizer can be applied, but isnt always necessary. Watering: Water regularly, for a total of about 1 inch per week. Although they can tolerate dry conditions
