Plant of the Month
Zinnias are one of the easiest plants to start from seeds and they grow so fast that it is somewhat pointless to pay for pricier bedding plants when there is such a short time from seed to bloom. New gardeners can plant them with confidence that they will grow and bloom reliably and fast. Most direct-seeded zinnias will bloom four to six weeks after they are planted if the ground is warm and conditions are favorable.
