Not that pleased with the seeds I purchased from Burpee this year. Anyone have suggestions for great zinnia seeds? Thank you!

I was happy and succesful with seed from Eden Brothers. They have seed on sale now.

I saw your topic and was going to answer that I just buy Burpee seeds at a discount store near me. I buy about 6 packages, usually several different tall varieties, and sow them all mixed together in a cutting garden, so I'm not really sure what kind of yield I get. Is that your complaint with Burpees, they don't germinate well? Or you didn't like the actual flowers?

actually, just realized this is in the perennial forum, you probably want to ask this in the annual forum.

Cindy~ I just didn't find them as full as I have previously grown them and some varieties I did not like at all. They looked like soldiers standing in the flower bed...Since I am new at gardening I thought I might ask what the zinnia "pros" use. Of the Burpee seeds I used last year, County Fair was the best. Some of the others were actually a bit unattractive. I am sure you will do great with the ones you have.(The color of the Tequila Lime seeds were a dull in my opinion; I won't buy those again) Good luck!

When I used to grow annuals, I bought Zinnia seeds from Walmart. etc without any problems. Walmart sells Burpee seeds. I now buy perennial seeds from stores and save shipping charges.

Most often if seeds don't come up, it is not the seeds but how they were sown.

I like the Zinnias from Renee's Seeds.

I think she uses top suppliers and culls out the lesser quality seeds--I've had very good luck with the quality of the blooms compared to those of some of the other well know companies and she does designer color combinations, too.

If you have questions about her Zinnia seeds you can call them up and they are happy to answer in detail.
