Zinnia Season is Almost Here
The zinnias we planted from seed in the garden are starting to bloom! We planted them the first week of May, which means they went from seed to flower in 5 weeks! Pretty impressive. It is also much cheaper, as we filled a 100 sq. ft. area for about $8. You just need to be able to delay gratification in order to wait a few more weeks to have blooming flowers, rather than buying them from the garden center already blooming!
This is Queen Red Lime Zinnia. It has a red center with green outer petals. I can’t wait to see it in full bloom!
This zinnia is called Zowie. It is not as fully double as some of the other varieties, but has a beautiful color.
