Growing Instructions: Start Zinnia seeds outdoors in the spring after the danger of nighttime freezing has past. Pick a location with full sun and prepare soil for good drainage, if needed. Plant seeds 1/4" deep and 24” apart, using 3 seeds per hole. Keep the soil evenly moist until the seeds germinate in 8 - 10 days. Once the seedlings reach 2", thin out so you have individual plants spaced 24” apart. Water regularly allowing the soil to go nearly dry between each watering. Fertilize monthly in the summer with a general purpose fertilizer. Deadhead regularly for continuous summer and fall blooms. To get a head start, seeds can be planted indoors in the late winter. Transplant outdoors after the danger of nighttime freezing has past.



All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
