Sowing Mixed Colour Zinnia Lilliput Seeds

  • Select a good seed sowing compost, or fertilized soil. Optimum temperatures for germination are between 18 – 23 degrees.
  • Sow sparingly in your growing medium, ensuring the compost/soil is very well drained. Only cover lightly, allowing lots of light to enter.
  • Once placed in their final position, lilliput seeds should germinate within around 5-10 days. Leave seedlings to establish.
  • Once the stems have shown strong leaves, you can then transplant to their final destination. This can be a much cooler area.
  • Feeding liiliput plants only once a month is best. You can also detach any flowers which are becoming faded, as this prolongs the blooming period for stronger flowers.
