Zinnia Elegans Cresto! Peaches & Cream
This mix of pastel-coloured zinnias is not only extremely popular among the butterfly and bee populations; we love it too. As the name suggests, the flowers are a lovely shade of peaches and cream, which is currently very on-trend. There is no need to be sparing when you cut the Elegans Cresto! Peaches & Cream, as vigorous cutting will cause them to keep producing an abundance of flowers. Peaches & cream are ideal double-flowered cut flowers and an absolute must-grow in your picking garden. They are also very strong in a vase.

Annual flower seeds
All our flower seeds produce flowers that are suitable for use as cut flowers. They are also used by professional nurseries and floriculture companies. For flower seeds to be considered high-quality, they need to have outstanding germination capacity and energy and therefore yield a high percentage of flowering plants. All seeds are annuals, which means that they have a lot of growing power: they go through all the stages – from a seed to a flowering plant that, in turn, produces new seeds – in the space of just one season. Most flowers bloom for about three to five months. A rule of thumb in this is that the more flowers you pick, the faster they will grow back! All our seeds are untreated and uncoated, and are also suitable as starting material for growing organic flowers.
- Plant in moist soil to which the seeds stick for best germination.
- Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil of approx. 0.5 cm.
- Grow in fertile, well-drained soil.
- Give them a sunny spot and sufficient protection from strong winds. Support if necessary.
- Water regularly.
Pinch out the tops of the young Zinnia plants when they are about 30 cm tall for better branching and a higher flower production. The best way to check if the flowers can be picked is by holding them at the bottom of the stem and shaking them; if the flower wobbles, it still needs to develop a bit more.
