#zinnia #orange at last I’ve managed to get a decent amount of these to germinate.. So precious! Not too much water, not too little, don’t disturb the roots too much but luckily worth the effort!

Well done, I don't have much luck with them either 🌹🌹

I’ve sown them in peat pots @pelly so as not to disturb the roots and put them in a really well draining planter (mesh fire pit!) and hardly watered them at all, and are on the hottest part of the deck! I was determined to succeed this year after 4 or 5 years of poor results!
