After my mothers passing 14 years ago, my father built a green house to fill his time. He started to grow Zinnia's and giving everyone starts for their gardens. I have created a cut flower garden just for the Zinnia's and since then I have my own green house and start my own. My father and I trade starts every year and enjoy these magnificent splashes of color until the first frost. They make wonderful cut flowers to enjoy on the kitchen table and last for a long time.
