Plant Now: Zinnias

Mixed zinnias
Zinnia 'Candy Cane'Zinnia 'Green Envy'
Zinnias are quick bloomers. Sowing to flowering can take as little as 80 days, so there is still plenty of time to plant these vibrant blooms. They’re quite the workhorse in the flower garden too, producing a constant supply of blooms right up till the first frosts. Flowers come in almost every colour, and some are even bi-coloured or speckled. Zinnias are real sun lovers. Sow seeds or plant seedlings now and they’ll flower throughout autumn.
