Zinnias


These were new last year and sold out early. This year I'm getting a note from Johnny's saying they are in short supply and limited and back-ordered until March 15. Kynda grew them last year because I got some seeds early on; they were beautiful. We may have to look at pictures this year.

I love zinnias! It's so nice to be able to dream about our gardens in the gray colorless winter!

Those are beautiful.And what a nice thing to look at on a cold winter day. We've had zinnias from time to time but haven't for awhile. I'll have to think about planting some this year. How nice you got some seeds though. Maybe you'll have some after all.

you know, as the blossoms dry up, you can cut them off. I store them in a paper bag until they are really dry. Then in the fall, after a hard frost, I cut off all the heads and spread them on a pop flat. When they are good and dry, I break them apart and store over the winter; plant the whole bunch in a row in my garden and have beautiful zinnias again. You can actually plant them in fall if your ground is ready because they will reseed themselves if you don't disturb the soil.
