Zinnia free seeds

I don't know about all Zinnias, but I think most are 2-3 foot.

Cold and wet here [ and the weathers not much better ] May need to put the heating back on. OH is threatening to put gloves on.

Well done Mrs G., mine are not that advanced yet.

Despite the weather weeds are growing at a frightening speed, must get out there. I am plagued by Enchanters Nightshade and am really struggling to get on top of it. It is a shame it invades everything, as it has really pretty flowers.

OH cooking Thai chicken tonight, with a few beers and then the movie Birdman.

Have a good one.

The Zinnias that I grow reach about 3 foot tall, although currently are about 9 inches. At the moment they are still indoors, but will go out to the cold greenhouse soon, they will not be planted out until end of May or early June.

Mine are fairly sturdy, so maybe yours have suffered from lack of light and become etiolated.

I would put them outside somewhere sheltered during the day and bring them in at night. Pinching out would probably help.

Morning all.

Wet and windy here, not a gardening day.

My 3 ducks have decided to put in an appearance, having not seen them for a week or so. Strange relationship, 2 males and 1 female. I assume they are not breeding.

I have decided to blame Fg. for all our political woes.

Have a good day.

Should my canna be sprouted yet?

Are you growing them with some heat. I always start mine off inside, until the end of May.

Could not sleep, so decided a gentle amble round the garden would cheer me up.

it is beautiful outside, but I can't seem to shake how fed up Last night has made me.

Morning all.

Just off to bed now, after a hugely disappointing night, see you some time tomorrow.

Evening all.

Not around much today as trying to get local supporters out to vote, driving some without transport and generally supporting the cause.

Hope it is worth it.

Off to watch the results.

Oh dear WW., showing our age gap. I saw P. Floyd on the original Dark Side of the Moon tour!
