I’m a 32 year old guy up in Abbotsford, BC, Canada. Your books and instructional web content has inspired me to plant about 1/4 acre flower plot. Thanks for all that you offer!
I’ve started soil blocking and have a decent light setup. I’ve noticed from other videos that you seem to start zinnias in 3/4 inch blocks. Is there a trick to starting the larger seeds in small blocks?

Stick the pointy end in first and the tail of the seed will still be sticking out the top- works great. Start 2-3 weeks before planting out.

Thank you! It was hard to find this specific information!😊

So when that Zinnia plant was much shorter, did you pinch its central stem? Maybe not.

No this plant was not pinched-

Do you cut the same way other times too or just the first cutting?

After the first central stem cut, make the cut at the end of the stem you are harvesting.

Is this the proper first cut if I also tipped the young transplant?

Depends on how deep or low you cut it.

Wonderful video with clear demonstration of how to cut zinnias for good stem length. Technically well done with everything in focus. Bright colors. Beautiful production field ( how do you do it!??) Excellent. Thank you.
