Where to Plant Zinnia Seeds

Choose a spot that has full sun. Zinnias can thrive in a wide array of well-draining soil conditions.

How to Plant Zinnia Seeds

Dig up the soil in the area where you want to plant zinnias and work in 2 or 3 inches of compost or peat moss to help improve soil fertility and drainage. Plant seeds about ¼” - ½” deep in the soil. Once seedlings are about 3” tall, thin them out to maximize air circulation and prevent powdery mildew. Dwarf varieties, which are 1 to 1 ½ feet tall, should be planted or thinned to about 9” apart, while taller 3-foot varieties should be spaced about 1 foot apart. If starting zinnias indoors, fill pots with an organic potting mix. Saturate the potting mix with water, then place two zinnia seeds in each planting unit or pot. Press the seeds into the soil to allow for full seed-to-soil contact, then cover with about ½” of potting mix. Place the zinnia in a warm (65-70F) location with full light. Keep the zinnia seeds moist and check on them every day or two. Once the seedlings are 2 ½ - 3 inches tall, they are ready to be transplanted outdoors. Zinnias are easy to transplant because the plants can be moved while they are in bloom! While they grow best in full sun, they can tolerate partial shade.

How to Care for Zinnias

Water the area of your zinnia plants carefully, do not get the stems or leaves wet since zinnias are prone to mildew. Keep your zinnia garden lightly moistened, and let the area dry out between watering. The beauty of zinnias is that you can spend your attention elsewhere while they bloom profusely summer to autumn.
