Grow some gems, gold medals and ghosts in your garden!

Tall and tiny zinnias

Zinnias are bright cheerful flowers that are ideal for picking for a vase and if you sow zinnia seed during October you’ll be bringing a colourful bouquet inside in just 10 – 12 weeks.

Yates® Zinnia Gold Medal have dahlia-like scarlet, yellow, orange or pink blooms on impressive 1.2 m tall stems.

They are ideal for creating a backdrop of long lasting colour in a sunny garden bed.

Yates Zinnia Lilliput grow to around 50 cm tall and have compact, fully double dome-shaped flowers in shades of red, orange, pink, yellow and white.

Zinnia flowers attract bees so they’re wonderful plants to include in and around the vegie patch where they can help improve pollination of vegies like cucumbers, pumpkins and zucchinis.

How To Grow:

Dahlias

Dahlias bring beautiful bold flowers into the garden during summer. They come in a gorgeous range of colours from whites, buttery cream, yellow and salmon through to bright pink and rich red.

It’s also hard to believe one type of plant can have so many flower shapes, which include pompons, anemones, cactus, single and collarette. Flowers can be small or grow to the size of a dinner plate.

Dahlias can be grown from tubers and take around 2 months to flower. Dahlias can also be grown from seed, such as Yates® Dahlia Cinderella, which is a compact dahlia that produces a long lasting display of bold and bright blooms.

It’s ideal for massed garden colour, borders and pots and the plants can continue to perform for years.
