At last a #zinna - these have had so much cosseting! Grown from seeds in peat pots so that they aren’t traumatised by repotting, not watered too much and kept in full sunshine! Happy fabby Friday everyone 😊
Mine are growing in a pot with other annuals. I was really happy all germinated as it was my first year sowing them. But they're only half the size they were supposed to be so must remember to give them more room next year. I tried growing them in a flowerbed last year but they got eaten by slugs/snails.
Thank you @Keely @Diane051285 and this was last chance saloon for them @rachelbrooks and I couldn’t resist a free packet of seeds with GWMagazine but following advice they were better this year.. sounds like you’ve done really well @ublaszko 😊 definitely recommend peat pots then planted close together in a planter 😊
I might try that with my annual mix next year 👍 I don't really grow a lot from seed because according to my cat windowsills are not plant shelves and she keeps breaking seedlings when she's swishing her tail while looking at birds outside 😅
It's definitely not perfect but it's my first #zinnia that I've grown from seed this year to flower, I found them difficult to germinate and it's a miracle I've got any, as they have been dying off all year! #precious 😆 🌺 have a fab Friday everyone
Thank you lovelies @pelly @flof1952 and @angiecrazycatlady - I'm scared to check the forecast! So far it hasn't bothered me but it won't be long 😏 fingers crossed for the 19th - your daughter's wedding And my son's 30th birthday kayaking party!?! 😱🌊
Morning Carole my first zinnia flower looked like it had been dragged through a hedge backwards but my second flower was lovely must admit mine were a bit tricky to germinate 😏 but I don't remember having that problem last year with them 🙄 have a lovely day 😊
Ah @angiecrazycatlady that's our job isn't it 😫 dance like no one is watching 💃🌞mmh I've always had a problem with them @nessas apparently they are a bit precious and don't like being moved at all so a friend says she sows them in peat pots so no transplanting at all and hers are amazing! So next year...
