Benary's Giant Zinnias - what am I doing wrong?
I'm so discouraged and I don't understand what exactly I'm not doing right.
Most everything I've read about growing cut flowers for market recommends the Benary's Giant. The description in the seed catalog touts plants 40-50" high and "fully double, dahlia-like blooms".
My plants are maybe 12" tall and have 2-3" single blooms. I called the seed company for some advice and they recommended that I thin my plants to 12-14" spacing. Which I've done with no real improvement.
What am I missing?
