Product Description

Peppermint Stick Zinnia seeds produce big, double, dahlia-like flowers. Super colourful pompons in pink, cream, white, and gold. Each flower is uniquely striped and flecked with darker colours, so no two are exactly the same. Plant height to 70cm (28″). Zinnias are extremely easy to grow from seed, and this is a particularly nice mix. Its straight stems and perfectly upright growth make Peppermint Stick Zinnia a particularly useful cut flower, and they look wonderful in arrangements. Try a row of this exceptional Zinnia in your raised bed or in quite large containers.

How to Grow Zinnias

There’s no mistaking the colour and stature of annual Zinnias.Follow this handy How to Grow Zinnias from seeds guide below and grow some colour in your garden this summer. Plant Zinnias seeds in average, well-drained garden soil, but dig in a generous amount of well-rotted manure the previous fall. Pinch off growing tips early in the season for bushier growth. Water regularly, keeping leaves as dry as possible. Deadhead regularly. Feed once in early spring, and again once flowering has begun.
