Good morning GTers! I still have a few flowers on my #zinnia plants although I've dug more out than are remaining! At least I've got more space for spring bulbs! Have a great day everyone! 😀 #pink

@mrsflowerpot - Pretty good success with two different varieties! I'd chalk my secret down to luck though! 😀

@bigemrg .......these flowers are SO beautiful. I grew some from seed a few years ago......only had a quarter survive!! Another few perished once I'd planted them out.....the stalks rotted!! Am going to try again next year :)
