Today we want to give you all some fun facts and quick tips for growing and enjoying everyone's summer favorite, zinnias! Zinnias are an annual, which means you have to plant them each year, but they are very easy to grow from seed. It's important to note that they do not like the cold so make sure to get the seeds in the ground after the last frost of the year and plant in an area that gets lots of sun.
The best thing about Zinnias is their color! They come in a huge variety of fun bright colors and different size blooms.
Zinnias like to be pruned and will continue to produce new blooms all summer long, so you can feel free to cut to your hearts content. They are beautiful in all different kinds of bouquets, for special events or just pretty bunches around the house. I personally think they are great for summer picnics or outdoor parties. Here's some arrangements we have put together:
Our zinnias are thriving in the gardens and you are more then welcome to order ahead or stop by to pick up a bunch. Most importantly, we hope you get a chance to enjoy their burst of color and sweet cheery faces this summer!
