Very lovely, Candee. Are your zinnias all gone? I should have some mums blooming in a month or so.

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

I hardly had any zinnias this year. Something got all the seed and I seeded them 3x. I finally did some in pots but all that was left were the giant whites so not much color for arrangements this year. Thank goodness the dahlias are doing so well.
I don't have any mums, never had a good thumb for them as I managed to kill them all.

Mums need a lot of fertilizer adn dont like gettigntheir feet too wet through the winter. I only have a few varieties.. several I grow in a flower box that have wintered 2 years now and a very very hardy tall variety..

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Guess the fertilizer is my problem with them cause I sure can't keep them thriving. They will winter in our area as I see them all over the place, just not here!!!

They like lotsa nitrogen.. have you tried them in containers???

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Yes containers and in the ground, think they just don't like me!
