My zinnia saplings are affected by a disease. The top leaves have
become curly and distorted. No pests/organisms are seen even when seen
with a magnifying glass. There have been no improvement even on
spraying systemic insecticide. The top of plants were cut yet the new
growth again appears to be curly. Has any one faced this problem? Do
suggest a remedial action.
Systemic insecticide for a Zinnia ? I could see a tree peony but an
annual ? Since this appears to be your first post I'd say you are a bit
crazy. Not a bad thing but insane came to mind first. Rip then out
improve the soil and get back.

Saplings are young trees. Zinnias are medium-sized green annuals, not
saplings. Cutting the tops of zinnias would not leave much left, at this
time in my climate. (Actually, it's still too soon to put zinnias out
here.) Usually a few of my zinnias die mysteriously. Twice all my zinnia
seedlings in the house got a disease that spread to all my Asteraceae
seedlings! But sorry, no particular advice for you.
