Zinnias

My shopping experience was very good considering the times. Many of my gardening friends had difficulty finding seeds. Where as I received most of my order. I just picked my first zinnias 3 days ago. They are great cut flowers and brighten up any space.

Strong plants

Easy and quick delivery. My zinnias all sprouted and grew well. No blooms yet as a deer are all of the buds for a morning snack.
