Recommended Spacing for Magellan Series Zinnia

nutsaboutflowers(2b/3a)June 1, 2011

Hi there.

My attempt to grow a few zinnias in the house was only moderately successful, at best.

I'd like to direct seed the Magellans that I got from Vesey's. Their website says to plant them 6-12 inches apart. We all know there's a big difference between 6 and 12 inches when it comes to plants.

I like my flowers to be fairly tightly spaced, but I understand they're suseptible to mildew.

What would you recommend for spacing?

Thanks!

If the area gets decent airflow I'd go for 6 to 8" myself. I like tight flower beds too.
