|Is it true that if you remove side shoots from a zinnia it will produce larger flowers? what if you want a LOT of zinnias?

|What you describe may be true of some plants (dahlias and chrysanthemums, for instance) but I don't think it's true with zinnias. They generally produce the same size flowers regardless of the number of flowers on a plant. I'd just leave them alone and enjoy their many stems and many flowers.
