You are absolutely correct. I figured it would be gone soon when the frost comes and it was in a weird position encroaching on other perennials. Have lots of seeds to replace it. Will see it back next year in a better position. 👍😊 @emch

@hkyfvr they’re one of the best annuals I think 😍 can’t imagine a summer garden without their fluffiness 😂

I'm having no luck with them the last couple of years. I've all but giving up on them.

I used 2 pouches of seeds to get 9 plants. So many did not germinate. It was frustrating but it was worth it to get a few. Keep trying Alan. The last 2 years have been a little weird for some plants. 👍😍 @alan1111

We'll see Diane. Like you I tired 3 verities ended up with 3 plants that are weak looking and the flowers are small 😩

Oh dear Alan. Maybe they were older seeds. My one pack looked like it had in the store a while but the colour was so nice I took a chance. Not a good plan. I also bought a special container to plant a lot. They just fell over. I had the best luck planting the seeds in bigger plastic containers with holes punched in the bottom. My plan next Spring is to do that. 👍😍 @alan1111

Thanks for the advice Diane. I hope your plans for next year work. I might try that next year. I was given the seeds by 3 different people here on gt.

That's a nice colour one. I finally got a zinnia to flower not as pretty as that one, its pale with a hint of pink, yellow and orange.

Thanks Alan. Am happy I got 9 zinnias at least. I even got a few cosmos. Hopefully both of ours will avoid being snail dinner. 👍😍 @alan1111

Oh my goodness. That is a lot of seed trays. Do you have room for all those little plants? Good luck with your planting. 👍😅

hkyfvr

Oh no. That is too bad. I have one pot with about 8 Zinnias in it Hope they do ok but am not holding my breath. I have 3 tiny cosmos in my garden. If they survived the snow today maybe I can try something to ward off slugs. We had to spray our trees for tent caterpillars and the neighbour has gypsy moths. These pests never end. 😫🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ @alan1111

🤞The zinnias do well. Snow! So late 😱 bound to knock things back. It's always a challenge with the weather and pests make up wonder why we do it 😅 when it does go right makes it all worth while
