Dollar Tree Zinnias


At 10 cents a pack, I never paid much attention to the seeds sold at the dollar stores .. this year I bought some and was pleasantly surprised! I won't make the mistake of passing them by in the future and will definitely be trying out others!

To me zinnia are also good for the price. since the winter was so mild I didnt have to plant them. I dropped some seeds on the ground last fall when collecting them and had 100 pop up! and they really bring in, the pollinators

Nice! I love Zinnias because they are so easy. I like to make walls with them. Started in a cold frame in plug trays in June they germinate fast. Then I just plop the plugs in the ground about 6 inches apart. I made a wall this year that was 6 ft long and 4ft wide. It was fab.
