Grow-A-Long Zinnia’s

The dusty matt faces give Zinnia’s a rare and exotic beauty that is perfect with the Dahlia’s in late Summer.

Zinnias are actually light sensitive so if you start them too late you’ll have to wait ages for summer flowers. Native to Mexico they resent cold wet conditions.

Avoid frost at all costs.

This video will explain how to achieve the best results.

When we ‘Pinch’ certain plants we remove apical dominance, but what does that actually mean? In the video I show rather than just explain using Zinnia’s as my example.

Pinching and Apical Dominance

With Zinnias you need to take a good pinch to remove the apical dominance.

Zinnias are at risk from caterpillars and aphids as well as Slugs and Snails.
