Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

I remember the post 😂 . You waited ages for it to flower and then were sorely disappointed 🙈 . Glad you like it now!

Now that it’s opened a bit more ‘Envy’ is beginning to grow on me 💚 I think the trick is to plant en masse rather than dot them about individually. #waitandsee #zinnia #zinnia-envy #jacarandacuttinggarden #mygardentoday 💚

It is lovely. I've seen it planted en mass at various gardens and does look stunning. Give it a bit of time 💚

They’ve taken ages to get going and now I’m not sure I even like them 😢 #upclose isn’t too bad but any further away and they’re almost nondescript 😢 #zinnia #zinnia-envy #grownfromseed #jacarandacuttinggarden #mygardentoday 💚

Morning Barbara @jacaranda I must admit I have grown these from seed this year for the 1st time & im not impressed with them, so don’t think I will again. Not got this one though. Have a lovely day & stay safe out there 🥵😘

I grew them a couple of years ago. I liked the look of them on the packet but in reality they looked quite different and normally I love green flowers 🤔💚

They look fabulous with any other colour.....but I know what you mean they kinda get lost in the foliage...l

I think it's pretty but I guess it might get lost amongst other greens, maybe if it was against a backdrop of red or black leaves it might stand out more?

You’re right, Cyndi! Maybe I’ll try them again next year but mix them with other colours ❤️🧡💛💜💙💚 @cyndi 😘

Thanks Suzie, all good here 🤞 I agree, first time for me too and I’m not impressed but I’ve seen lovely photos on GTags so I might give them another go next year but mix the colours up a bit. Hope all’s well with you 😘😘 @jadojado29
