Germination of

Jazzy Red Zinna: Zinnia Elegans 'Jazzy Red', Youth-and-Age

Zinnia elegans 'Jazzy Red'

Zinnia elegans 'Jazzy Red' (Zinnia): To germinate zinnia seeds, start by scattering them over a moist soil mix and press them lightly into the soil. Cover the container with a clear plastic bag to retain moisture and keep it in a warm, bright location with partial shade. Germination should occur in 5-7 days.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
