Hi, I was wondering if it's too early to start germinating zinnias from seed. I live in the New England area.... Thanks

RE: Starting Zinnia

Kaylana - Zinnias grow fast, and it is indeed a lot too early to start them. I've grown hundreds of these each year for market sales, and I always start them 4 weeks before my last frost date. That makes it May 1 for me here in northern Michigan, but I suppose it would be sometime in April for you.

Mid-March is the earliest I start any of the annuals I grow. If you have a bad case of planting fever right now, maybe you should look into the winter sowing forum.

Ok tinman.. Thanks. I kinda figured it was too early but I was too anxious :)
As of right now my area is 0 degree all week :(
