First off, all of my garden is in containers on the patio. I have ferns, a huge philodendron, lots of asparagus and ponytail ferns, geraniums, caladiums, a coupla rose bushes, fan palms, and variegated ginger plants. I'm also doing tomates for the first time, and have gotten them all the way from sowing seeds to planting out in the EBs. Now's the waiting game for the tomatoes.
I didn't have a big $$ budget for this summer, however, I want to plant colorful flowers (zinnias) in pots to dot here and there within my greenery for pockets of color. And, I have to do it on the cheap. So, I bought all these packets of zinnias (Cut and Come, Lime, and Fuschia) and I sowed them in pellets and aluminum pans. Now I'm uppotting them into 2" seed trays (yeah, I know I should've just sowed the seeds directly into the seed trays...live and learn).
Is this uppotting and unnecessary step at this point? Can I just transplant the hardy seedlings into the containers? I'm running out of containers to uppot to...
Also, if anyone has any zinnias in containers, I'd sure like to see your arrangements for ideas.
