Zinnias last until October + Best method for cutting
All the articles on how to make Zinnias keep their bloom simply say to deadhead them but when I read about deadheading zinnias there seems to be several different methods.
My number 1 goal is to have cut zinnias for my wedding in October.
I'm wondering the best way to keep zinnias blooming and the best way to dead head them to have long stems for cutting.
Where on the stem to cut? High close to the flower or lower?
When to cut - do I have to wait for the flowers to start fading or can I cut sooner? I would love to have vases of flowers all summer but that's not a priority.
