It is sought after for it's gorgeous double blooms, attractive foliage, and brightly colored petals. You will be pleasantly surprised to know that we carry over 25 Zinnia flower seeds in our online shop.

Sowing The Seed

Zinnias are not particularly fond of being transplanted. However, if you are looking to start them indoors, it is recommended to sow them in peat pots, so that the entire pot can be transplanted later on to prevent root shock. If started outdoors, be sure to turn the soil, or throw down new soil in it's place. Sow the seeds when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed, at a shallow depth of 1/4" under topsoil.

Growing Conditions

Zinnias will prefer an area of full sunlight with temperatures that exceed 60F. Although they are adaptable, it is best to use a soil that is humus rich, and fertile. Drainage is crucial, so replacing any hard, compact soil with a fresh mixture of compost is recommended. Water daily so that the soil remains moist until germination occurs.

Germination & Growth

Your Zinnias will begin to emerge in roughly 7 to 10 days after sowing. The plants will reach a mature height of about 24 - 30 inches tall and can be spaced roughly 12 inches apart from one another. Persian Carpet is comprised of stunning, 2 inch blooms in shades of red, orange, yellow, mahogany, cream and purple. Excellent flower for bouquets and floral arrangements.
