So, I carefully planted individual zinnias and cosmos in flats under lights last March.

Those flats are on my porch now looking rather wan. I had to be away for 6 weeks, so June 3 I mixed up all my leftover flower seeds and tossed them along a weeded bed I'd just planted lilies in.
You should see the size of the plants I got!

1. FWIW....

Both those flowers are practically weeds in my garden.
All I do is toss out the seeds in the air, they land in the back flower beds and grow and re-seed themselves.
I water a couple times a week if necessary.

Lots of flowers seem to do best just tossed into dirt.

2. Some flowers actually do better sown in place than started early indoors.

And, um...


.....those are two of 'em.

appreciatively,
Bright
