Hi Everyone -

I planted zinnia seeds in jiffy pots a couple of weeks ago, and I was wondering:

1) How should they look before they are ready to plant in the ground?

2) I've read that some pinch the plant back for a more bushy habit and for more tall should the plant be before doing so, and where exactly do
I pinch them?

3) I'm in Nashville, TN - with all the major flooding we've had and the ongoing rains - the ground is always soaked. Is it safe to plant in the ground even when
the ground is very wet?

Thank you for any advice you have to offer!
