When we prepare the soil to welcome our annuals, in the apring or at the beginning of the summer, let’s add a good quantity of manure, or slow release granular fertilizer. To improve the flowering we can also give it specific fertilizations for flowering or green plants, mixed with the irrigating water, every 20-30 days.
The Zinnia is a year or two year long plant. Zinnia isn't an evergreen; during the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 60 cm in height. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub.
As autumn comes these plants tend to perish, we can diminish the waterings, or even interrupt them. 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 .

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