Z ...is for Zin­nia

Kids Go Gardening - - News -

We love Zin­nias’ bright happy colours. But­ter­flies love them too. Tall zin­nias are great for pick­ing. Dwarf zin­nias are ideal in pots. They grow easily from seed sown straight into the gar­den in Oc­to­ber or Novem­ber, once the soil warms up. If you want to get started ear­lier, sow seed in pots or pun­nets of Yates Black Magic. Plant the seedlings out once frosts have passed, tak­ing ex­tra care not to dam­age their roots.

ZIN­NIAS LOVE SUN and warm, well-drained soil. They don’t like it too wet or hu­mid. Give them plenty of space.

TIP:

Your zin­nias will make more flow­ers if you pinch out the first lit­tle bud on each seedling and feed them with Yates Thrive.
