I am lucky to live near to several great locally owned nurseries. I only go to the ones at the big box stores out of curiosity once in a while. I visited one of the local ones the other day and saw a glorious sight.....a large display bed planted heavily with several cultivars of zinnias.They are spectacular. The nursery is owned by a 80+ year old man who is very active in the day to day work of planting and other activities. I talked with him the other day and he said he was beginning to feel his age and was cutting back to a 10 hour day. He also grows a wonderful selection of vegetables each year. I buy veggies there that I don't grow in my own garden. Here are pictures of the zinnia display bed.......

I planted seeds for Queen Red Lime but am disappointed. Not like the picture on the catalog.

Not what I expected, different colors from the same seeds.

Hello everyone,

I have grown a zinnia garden here in our rural Kansas area. This picture was taken a few weeks ago.

Thumb of 2014-09-05/ZenMan/9d2d84

I plan to save seeds from some of my favorite zinnia specimens and grow them next year.
