I noticed that you are on day 34 of your Zinnia’s and I was wondering how they are doing. Did you plant these directly into the garden, or flats first? I see a picture of a flat and think this garden is marked as “indoor”, so probably that – but I thought I would ask. Thanks.

Judith505, thanks for asking and reminding me to update this. None of the Zinnias, except for the Candy Cane sprouted… and only a few of those sprouted and are still only about 4 inches. I think the seeds were either too old or just not good. I’ll start with new seeds next year.

oh, that’s a shame. Thank you for letting me know though, I appreciate it.
