      Thank you for posting my hummingbird with zinnia image. They certainly loved your zinnia! I'll be purchasing seeds again in 2016 #connieetterphotography

      I am a little disappointed you do not have Bee Balm as a hummingbird attractor...I have been delighted year after year with the hummers that reappear for my Bee Balm. Bee Balm also is a great flower for arrangements. You will never believe the compliments you get because of it's flashy style and bright colors. Don't forget, the flower is also a wildflower with a variety colors from pale pinks to purples to the more domestic bright reds.

        Hi Judith - Bee Balm is a great suggestion - glad you caught this! We are big fans of the bee balms we have planted in our gardens and I'm not sure how this one was overlooked. Thanks for the reminder and Happy Gardening - Jenny

      I was given Zinnia seed and was wondering when I should plant them.

        Hi Peggy - you are lucky! Zinnia's are beautiful, great in a vase, and very easy to grow. When to plant depends a bit on where you live, but for most areas I think that you could scatter them right now (late spring). That being said, we've noticed that many folks have great success with planting their wildflower seeds in the fall. This way, you'll get lots of early blooms: http://www.americanmeadows.com/fall-planting-is-best
