Zinnia - Dahlia Flowered
This is a real sun loving variety, which produces large, double flowers in a wide range of colours. The plants reach the height of 60-70cm.
Sow from March to May. Sow seeds into individual pots or module trays of moist seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place at a temperature of between 20-23°C. 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, 3mm deep in drills 30cm apart in well cultivated weed free soil. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 30cm apart. Flowers from July to October.
