The Q&A Archives: Zinnia

Question: How do I properly cut the flowers in order to keep the zinnias blooming?

Answer: With zinnias you can cut back to nearest set of leaves, or you can cut them further down based on your desire. Zinnias are pretty forgiving in this respect so just cut off the flowering stem to a spot where the end will blend in with the rest of the foliage on the plant.
