How to Plant, Grow, and Care for Zinnia Flowers
I planted my Zinneas in flower boxes and they now have buds, however, the leaf edges are turning kind of yellow and crunchy? What's up?
Hi, Kathy. For bushier zinnias, you need to cut back stems while the plant is young. If your zinnias get too tall, you can do a hard pruning by cutting back the plant by about two-thirds.
Thank you so much from a gardeners experience. I realize zinnias are pretty simple to grow, but I’m still kinda concerned about WHERE to plant them.
Will them keep reseeding? I’ve read yes, I’ve heard no.
I’ve got an 8 hr eastern sun exposure.
Does this work?
Would Zinnias do well as Container/Pot Gardening? I like the idea Zinnias attract Butterflys; wonderful !!
Can you do a second summer planting of zinnias and if so, what are the planting dates? We are in zone 8.
Zinnias may receive themselves in a single growing season. I have them sprouting in my fall garden from seeds that bloomed earlier in the summer. They do not require stratification evidently. Zinnias are my favorite garden flower: reliable, tall, multiple colors, very hardy. .
I have grown zinnia's for years, and this is the first time some of my leaves are purple, not spots, purple in color, is this a different new type of zinnia
