ZINNIA ELEGANS 'GIANT CACTUS FLOWERED MIX'
So named for its unique, spiky appearance, this Zinnia has semi double, large blooms in a large palette of bright colours. Attractive to bees and butterflies, with its thick straight stems it also makes a wonderful cut flower and has a long vase life. Will keep blooming all through a hot season.
Sow seeds into individual pots or module trays of moist seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or a warm place at a temperature of between 20-23°C (68-75°F). Do not exclude light as this helps germination which usually takes 7-14 days. Later sowings can be made outdoors once the soil has warmed up 3mm (1/8") deep in drills 30cm (12") apart, in well cultivated weed free soil. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 30cm (12") apart.
