Gardeners' Notes:

In the past, Zinnias in my NJ garden do well during a dry summer but get black spot and mildew in wet weather. This year I planted the new Zinnia Zahara Double Fire for the first time. In August, we had 3x the usual amount of rainfall ... followed by Hurricane Irene. My Zinnia Zahara Double Fire plants look better at this time of year - mid Sept - than any Zinnias I have previously grown ... in spite of all the wet weather. These are a real winner. Superb show all summer and still going strong.
