The Q&A Archives: zinnia's

Question: I planted seeds of white zinnia's, they are about 9 in. tall. Should I pinch them back to make them bushier?

Answer: Zinnias do usually benefit from pinching when they are young. Usually you would pinch them when they are just a few inches tall, so this is a bit late. If they are very leggy, pinching out the growing tip might still be helpful. Also make sure they are receiving ample direct sun.
