Generalities Zinnia
The Zinnia is a year or two year long plant. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. Zinnia isn't an evergreen; during the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a red colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 60 cm in height.

Exposure ZinniaSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the the Zinnia in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. For a correct development of the plant we suggest avoiding exposure to late freezings; let's grow it in a covered place, locating it outside only in late spring.Annual plants are usually not grown during the cold period; as autumn arrives we can uproot them and save the seeds for the year after.

Watering ZinniaTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 2-3 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks . As autumn comes these plants tend to perish, we can diminish the waterings, or even interrupt them.

Treatments Zinnia
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Zinnia
Let’s grow these plants in a soft and dissolved, but well drained, soil.
