Garden Seeds // Spotlight: Zinnias
June is the time of year when zinnias are in bloom. They add tremendous color and height to any garden and are also a beautiful cut flower for your favorite vase.
This year, I have scattered zinnia everywhere: in between vegetables, in pots and amid my sunflowers. There are a zillion varieties of zinnia so your choices of color, shape and height are endless.
Zinnia can be planted through mid-June, so pick up a couple seed packets today and get these beauties in the ground. They are tolerant of full sun but need water daily.
