We start seeds indoors around mid September, 6 weeks before the last frost and plant them out once the chance of the last frost has passed. Zinnias need warmth to germinate, so direct seeding should only being attempted once the soil has warmed up.

Surprisingly, Zinnias are quite drought hardy and given there is enough goodness in the soil, can survive on minimum watering. However, remember, they, as all plants, love water, so the more you can give the better.
