Bright and beautiful just like the photo

In. Love. With. These. So bright and beautiful and stunning. Some of them look more like dahlias than zinnias. Some of them have this amazing two tone ombré look. They’re mesmerizing. I wish I had planted more.

Beautiful giant zinnias

Very easy to shop with you. Your seeds arrived in a timely manner. I started them in early spring in small grow containers then transplanted them to my garden in late spring. They grow to about 4-5’ high in various vibrant colors, adding much beauty to my home.

It’s still a little early to judge the vegetables and flowers, but I have started many of your seeds inside and almost all the seeds have germninated well. The only exceptions were the Non-stop Begonia seeds which failed to germinate at all.


Pinetree Garden Seeds

Hi Peter, I am sorry for the poor germination on the Non Stop Begonia. We do have a 90 day guarantee on germination. Unfortunately we are sold out of the Non Stop. We do have Dragon wing Pink left if you would like me to send a packet for you to Thank you again or I can refund your account. Thank you for your patience. Deby
