When to sow
When to Sow Queen Lime Red Zinnia Seeds
March to May
Where to Sow
Sow Zinnia seeds Into individual pots or module trays of moist seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place between 20-23°C (68-75°F). Do not exclude light as this helps germination which usually takes 7-14 days. Later sowings can be made outdoors once the soil has warmed up, 3mm (1/8") deep in drills 30cm (12") apart, in well-cultivated weed free soil. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 30cm (9-12") apart.
What to do Next
When well grown, gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost 23-30cm (9-12") apart, taking care not to damage the roots. Best planted in well-drained soil in full sun.
July to September
