When to plant my Zinnias

Posted by Brieninsac 9 - Sacramento, CA (My Page) on

I have a couple dozen Zinnia seedlings I'm ready to plant. They're about 3" tall and in paper pots. When do you think I should plant them? The lows at night are running in the low 40's. Is that too cold for them to go into the ground?

RE: When to plant my Zinnias


You can probably plant them any time. I don't think 40's will hurt them. It may take the seeds awhile to germinate. I have plants come up from last season's seeds every year. They just wait until the weather is warm.
