Growing Thumbelina Mix Zinnia Garden Seeds
Thumbelina Mix zinnia seeds may be sown 4 – 5 weeks indoors and transplanted outside after final frost, or grown directly in the garden or from a container. Plant Thumbelina Mix zinnia seeds ¼” deep and 6” apart in rich, evenly moist, and well-drained soil in full sun. Since a mature plant from the Thumbelina Mix is the shortest of all zinnias, it can be overlooked in the garden. Be sure to ventilate and properly sun your Thumbelina Mix and to water the soil directly to minimize wetting the foliage, as these dwarf zinnias are susceptible to mold and powdery mildew. Thumbelina Mix zinnia seeds mature in 65 days as 5 – 6” dwarfs with semi-double to double 1½” blooms of purple, fuchsia, orange, red, canary, lilac, and ivory, a perfect trimming to any garden or as a thoughtful, potted gift.
Thumbelina Mix debuted as a 1963 All-American Selections (AAS) Gold Medal Winner.
