I attempt every year to grow Zinnias from seed and every year when they are just coming up something is eating them. Any suggestions?



Do you mean leaves when you say 'eating them' - or roots? If leaves, it's probably the dreaded slugs or snails. If the roots, it may be 'damping off'.

I have grown Zinnias quite a few years and they always get eaten by slugs and snails unless I put slug pellets down, especially when they are new.

How do I say thanks?
