Grow Envy-Worthy Blooms: How to Grow Zinnia Elegans Envy

Unleash the captivating lime green allure of Zinnia Elegans Envy! This award-winning stunner boasts dahlia-like double blooms in a mesmerizing shade of lime green, adding a unique touch to your borders and cutting gardens. Thriving in UK gardens, Envy offers long-lasting blooms, effortless care, and exceptional beauty, making it a must-have for every gardener.


  • Direct sow outdoors: Sow directly into prepared soil from late May to mid-June, after the last frost has passed.
  • Optional indoor start: For earlier blooms, start seeds indoors in pots or trays filled with seed compost 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Harden off seedlings before transplanting outdoors.
  • Seed depth: Sow seeds 0.5cm deep.
  • Spacing: Thin seedlings to 30cm apart.

Growing Needs:

  • Sunlight: Full sun for optimal growth and flowering.
  • Soil: Fertile, well-drained soil enriched with compost.
  • Watering: Water regularly, especially during dry periods, but avoid overwatering.
  • Feeding: Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser every few weeks during flowering.

Harvesting & Enjoying:

  • Cut regularly: Pick blooms just as they open to encourage continuous flowering.
  • Stunning bouquets: Long-lasting stems make Envy perfect for vibrant cut flower arrangements.
  • Deadheading: Regularly remove spent blooms to promote further flower production.

Bonus Tips:

  • Succession sowing: Make repeat sowings every few weeks for a prolonged season of lime green glory.
  • Pinching: For bushier plants, pinch out the growing tip of seedlings when they reach 15cm tall.
  • Attracting pollinators: Envy’s unique colour attracts butterflies and bees, adding to your garden’s ecosystem.
