How to Grow Zinnias
General growing info. (Seed Saving: Zinnias will cross-pollinate. Gardeners should only grow one variety at a time to save pure seed, or isolate varieties by 1/4 mile.)

Best flowers for all-summer color! LOTS of blooms, great for cutting, easy to start!
My favorite flowers for a cutting garden! Easy to start, blooms all season long, great for cutting and filling your garden with color! Dahlia, zinnia, sunflower, daisy, and other hardy, low-maintenance plants with LOTS of flowers.
