I sow my zinnia seeds directly in my cutting garden a couple of weeks after frost danger. They like warm soil (70°) so it's worth waiting to get them started.
When the zinnia plant is around 12 inches tall you will want to take a pair of sharp, clean garden snips and cut off the stem right above a set of leaves. I know, I know…it feels wrong but it will lead to a better crop of zinnias for you!!!
