NEW! Open pollinated Zinnia seed- all grown at Roam Flora!
Zinnia's are one of our favourite flowers at Roam. We started saving Zinnia seeds from the absolute most beautiful varieties in 2020. In 2022, we grew hundreds of plants that we used only for seed production. When your plants start to bloom they will be a mix of colours and shapes. I love watching to see what each plant will produce! Everyone is their own unique look and some even have ombré petals which are unbelievably beautiful!
The photos displayed are all zinnia grown from Roam Flora zinnia seed in 2022.

To start early: sow seeds 4-6 weeks before your last frost date. In Ottawa, we start our zinnia seed in mid-April. Sow in 72 cell trays, use heat mats and grow lights for best results. When planting out your seedlings plant them deep - leave their leaves just exposed. They will root along the stem, strengthening lanky seedlings.
To direct sow: After all chance of frost has passed, lightly press seeds into the soil (about a 1/4 down). Mark where you put your seeds and keep the soil moist until they sprout then water regularly.
Plant spacing: 9"
Pinch top shoot after 4 sets of leaves to encourage branching and more blooms.
Plant in full sun (at least 6 hours a day) for best results.
Succession plant every 2-3 weeks for continual blooms all summer long.
TIP - Zinnias are heat lovers so don't plant them out too early in the spring! Even if it's hot during the day make sure the nighttime temperatures are warm too. In Ottawa, the time to plant out zinnia is usually after the May long weekend.
ENJOY! And be sure to tag @RoamFlora to share your zinnia seed growing experience!
