Last summer I had some of the prettiest Zinnias in the garden: they were all in various pastel shades. Zinnias come in the most wonderful different colors, sizes and forms, plus they face up well to our long, increasingly hotter summer weather and are super easy to start from seed. I made the discision then that next year I would plant lots and lots of Zinnias.
This year I was once again able to get a good selection of seeds in soft pinks, lavender, pale yellow, and I added Envy, a beautiful chartreuse colored zinnia to the mix.
Because I wanted a lot of plants I mixed all of the packets of seeds together and planted them in seed starting mix in a discarded flat. First I lined the flat with newspaper; I find this works well. That was two weeks ago and now you see all of my abundance of little seedlings, in a couple more weeks I can plant them out in the garden!
These are from last year, aren't they pretty ~ you can see why I love them.
If you get a chance try planting a few Zinnia seeds, so easy and you won't be disappointed. Oh, I almost forgot.. they also make great bouquets.
Thank you for visiting I hope you have a flower filled day.
