How to grow:
If growing Zinnia from seed then sow outdoors following the last frost of spring; lightly cover the seed once sown. Zinnia should be spaced at 15 to 20cm (small); 25 to 30cm (medium) or 45cm (large Zinnia species) apart. Ideally grow Zinnia in a sunny area of the garden that gets an afternoon shade. These plants are able to grow in most soils of pH 6 to 7, but the soil should be enriched with manure for best results. 
In cold areas it may be a good idea to start off Zinnia indoors first; do so about 7 weeks in advance of transplanting. It should take about one to three weeks to germinate Zinnia at a temperature of 20 to 27 degrees Celsius. Transplant Zinnia outdoors just after the last possible frost of spring.
