Zinnia elegans These tall bushy plants carry masses of 5-6 inch double flowers in brilliant colors of red, yellow, orange, lavender, maroon, violet and white. Sow the seed around your sunflower patch to conceal the stalks with a curtain of color. Grows up to 3 feet tall. Zinnias come in a diverse range of shapes, sizes, and colors-something for everybody. They are heat-loving plants, best sown at the same time that peppers are transplanted outside. Zinnias bloom during that part of summer when many other flowers have finished, from late July until the rainy season sets in, or until your first frost. The color and beauty of a flower garden can lift the spirit and renew the soul, and a bouquet of fresh cut flowers will bring sunshine into your home.
Grow It Yourself:
Get your Planting Trays or Pots ready. Use good Seed Starting Mix or Cocopeat or Potting Mix. Moisten the mix and plant the seed 3 times its size deeper in the mix. For example if the seed is 1 mm , then plant it 3 mm deep in the mix. Very small seeds can be sprinkled on top of the mix and covered with a very thin layer of mix. Spray the mix with water and cover with a plastic cover till you see germination. remove cover and keep in semi-shade location till seedling is 3 -4 inchs, then transplant seedling or move your pot in Sunny location.
