Zinnia (Zinnia Elegans Whirlygig Improved mixed) 75 seeds (#1517)

Very attractive hald hardy annual, which flowers the same year as sown. Grows up to 75 cm in height with lots of multi color beautiful flowers. A truly elegant, beautiful statement in the summer months.
Those plants will create an elegant statement in the border. Plant it in mass groupings to have the lovely effect.
The long stems are well-branched and make superb cut flowers.
Easy to grow, pollen and nectar rich vibrant flowers. Food source for butterflies and bees.
Good full sun is really all that's required, although some of the newer hybrids will even bloom in partial shade. As for water, they don't need much, since they're from hot desert-like habitats.
Almost any soil will do, but they prefer fast-draining gritty soil, if you have that available.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Sow outdoors from April to May (or after the last frost), where they are to flower.
Sow 0.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered.
Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days.
Thin them to 30cm apart. Water well until plants are established.
Also can be sown indoors, March-April, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or greenhouse. Keep moist.
Transplant seedlings, 5cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 30cm apart, when frosts are over.
