Outstanding in Thompson & Morgan trials, these robust plants show excellent garden performance, flowering over a long period and producing an abundance of fully double, deep pink-purple, dahlia-like flowers. This is a taller-than-usual variety of zinnia which will add colour and height to border displays as well as to cut flower arrangements. Zinnia Purple Prince will flower all summer until the first frosts, attracting bees and butterflies as well as the admiration of your neighbours!

Sow March to May. Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix. Then lightly cover, 3mm (1/8in) deep with vermiculite or sowing mix. Place container in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag at a temperature of 20-30C (68-86F) until after germination which usually takes 7-14 days. Can also be sown direct into the soil after last frost.
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle, taking care not to damage the fragile roots, into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost 30cm (12in) apart.
