Zinnias are one of the easiest plants to grow, as they grow quickly and bloom heavily. Zinnia flowers make a massive burst of color in your garden, and they attract butterflies.
Zinnias are annuals, so they grow for one season and make great cutting flowers. Smaller zinnias are suitable for edging, windowboxes, or other containers. The narrow-leaf zinnia also works well in hanging baskets.

Do not seed until the last frost has passed. Choosing a location that gets full sun is essential. Zinnias can stand a minimum daytime temperature of 60 degrees F, and a range of 74 to 84 degrees F is preferred. Zinnias are adaptable, but the ideal soil is nice and fertile, humus-rich, 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.

Sow zinnia seeds only ¼-inch deep. Space plants 6 inches apart, When seedlings reach three inches tall, thin them so that they’re 6 to 18 inches apart to maximize air circulation
