What are your best zinnia tips? And..........

14 years ago

.....which zinnias are you growing this year?

I looked for Burpee's Big Tetra seeds because I had success with them the past couple of years, but I didn't see any on the racks. I came home with State Fair (an old favorite), Giant Cactus-Flowered, Burpeeana Giants, Exquisite (open red and age to pink) and Isobellina, a lovely buff. I thought I might plant the last two in one bed and the remainder in another.

I find I often have to do a lot of replanting of zinnia seeds, and I'd appreciate knowing how you good zinnia gardeners handle this. I assume direct sowing is better than starting them indoors? Or is that no longer true?
