The Q&A Archives: Rain And Zinnias

Question: I had sown zinnias in my patio but it rained for two days.
I wonder if my seeds are going to survive.
Can you please help me with this?

Answer: Seeds are remarkably tolerant, so I wouldn't worry about their surviving two days of rainfall. A bigger concern might be if the bed flooded enough to cause the seeds to float away. Only time will tell! If, when they sprout, they aren't where you originally planted them, you can carefully dig the seedlings up and replant in a more appropriate place. Hope you have beautiful zinnias this summer!
