For as long as I have been gardening on my own, I have planted zinnia seeds.
I plant a mix of tall and bush zinnia seeds plants and always a row or two of the cut-and-come-again variety.
In seed catalogs and at the garden store seed pack rack, I pour over the zinnia options in search of the year's planting seeds. I've fallen for dwarf zinnias and seed packs that show variegated flowers. Sometimes I choose large pin cushion flowers and other years an assortment of small cheerful blooms. I love them all. I consume information about zinnia growing and eagerly await my first bouquet of the year. This year, I came across some heirloom zinnia seeds, with packets illustrated with flowers so lovely that I couldn't resist adding them to my rows of zinnias.
