Description

Zinnias are popular garden flowers because they come in a wide range of flower colors and shapes, and they can withstand hot summer temperatures, and are easy to grow from seeds. They are grown in fertile, humus-rich, and well-drained soil, in an area with full sun.

Planting And Care

  • Maintain moderate soil moisture and fertilize lightly to maximize growth and blooms.
  • After zinnias flower, cut off the old flowers (a process called “deadheading”) to encourage more flowers to form.
  • Zinnias are annuals and will die with the first hard frost of fall.

Light Requirement

  • Choosing a location that gets full sun is essential.

Soil

  • Zinnias are adaptable to most soil conditions, but the ideal soil will be rich in organic matter and well-drained.
  • Soil pH should be between 5.5 and 7.5.
  • If soil is amended with compost, the flowers will grow more quickly.

Watering

  • Once they are 3 to 4 inches high, water them deeply a couple of times a week, depending on weather.
  •  Zinnias aren’t drought tolerant, but they like their soil a little on the dry side.
  • The soil should not be continuously wet.
  • If we experience overcast June weather, cut down on watering.

Application of Fertilizer

  • Zinnias can be fertilized by a variety of sources.
  • Stephen (2004) found that the poultry manure is the most effective manure for Zinnia to grow taller.
  • The average height for the nine plants, after 18 days in poultry manure was 52.67 mm.

Re-potting

  • Transplant zinnias in the morning. Dig a hole large enough for the root ball and associated soil to fit into.
  • The top of the root cluster should be 1/2 to 1 inch below the surface.
  • Pack the soil loosely with your fingers and water it well.
  • Transplant zinnias in the morning.
  • Dig a hole large enough for the root ball and associated soil to fit into.
