HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in spring; this California Giant zinnia flower seed mix germinates best in warm soil. Plant just below the surface and keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which usually occurs within 7-10 days. Seedlings do not transplant well.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established, but do not over water. Though they flourish with occasional watering in dry weather, mature plants tolerate some drought. This plant grows best in rich soil, and may need light fertilization for best blooming. Pinch off the growing stems to encourage bushiness, and deadhead to prolong blooming. This plant attracts butterflies and bees.

Harvesting: For cut flowers, choose stems with flowers that have just opened. Strip the foliage that will fall below the water level, and place in water immediately.

Seed Saving: After their petals drop off, the centers of the flowers will darken and develop tight clusters of seed at the base. As soon as the seed heads have turned dark brown, remove them and spread them out to dry for several days. Thresh the dried heads to separate the small, arrow-shaped seeds from the chaff. Saving Zinnia flower seeds is possible by storing the cleaned seed in a cool, dry place.

Wonderful

My zinnia seeds arrived quickly and in great packaging. I have sprinkled them around our property and didnt expect to see much for awhile but in only three days there are so many green sprouts that I'm going to definitely need to thin them...I'm super pleased with my order and will definitely be shopping here again.

Quality & Quantity

These California Giants are a healthy, good-quality seed product. Considering that I'm a beekeeper, I grow multiple varieties of flowers. I'm growing in Ohio, zone 6a if that helps. It's my first year using seed from Everwilde Farms but I'm confident! The bulk seeds come in a white resealable bag for easy handling and storing for years to come. For the record, I ordered 2 lbs and shared with family members and still have at least 1 lb left over. If stored correctly, zinnia seeds can last 4-5 years.

Truly Giant

I grew these the summer of 2018 in NW Iowa, in heavy clay soil. After the first few weeks, I didn't water them at all. Zero mildew. Lots of seeds and excellent germination. They began blooming when about three feet tall and continued to grow and bloom till frost. At frost, most of them were several inches above 5ft. tall. They continue to pump out the nectar in brutal heat and migrating monarchs were all over them. Tiger swallowtails also like them. I recommend these flowers in all the butterfly/pollinator groups I belong to. My garden is almost entirely native plants but there will always be a big patch of these.

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

These enormous zinnias come in a stunning mix of pink, purple, red, orange, white, and yellow. This easy-to-grow annual blooms all summer long, and will attract butterflies to your yard and garden.
The first botanical records of this plant come from the notes of Spanish botanists Mocino and Sesse, who discovered the species growing in the wilds of southern Mexico in 1789. The common name "zinnia" honors German botanist and professor Johann Gottfried Zinn, who was among the first to grow this species after it was discovered. Zinnias signify thoughts of an absent friend in the Victorian language of flowers. With a bulk mix of California Giant zinnia seeds, it's possible to see all the colors of this beautiful and meaningful flower.

HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in spring; this California Giant zinnia flower seed mix germinates best in warm soil. Plant just below the surface and keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which usually occurs within 7-10 days. Seedlings do not transplant well.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established, but do not over water. Though they flourish with occasional watering in dry weather, mature plants tolerate some drought. This plant grows best in rich soil, and may need light fertilization for best blooming. Pinch off the growing stems to encourage bushiness, and deadhead to prolong blooming. This plant attracts butterflies and bees.

Harvesting: For cut flowers, choose stems with flowers that have just opened. Strip the foliage that will fall below the water level, and place in water immediately.

Seed Saving: After their petals drop off, the centers of the flowers will darken and develop tight clusters of seed at the base. As soon as the seed heads have turned dark brown, remove them and spread them out to dry for several days. Thresh the dried heads to separate the small, arrow-shaped seeds from the chaff.
