Zinnias in the Kitchen Garden
We love easy to grow zinnias in the kitchen garden. It’s a perfect match- annual flowers planted with annual vegetables. Every year we plant a border of the low zinnias in the raised beds. This year we chose Double Strawberry Zahara zinnias for heat tolerance and disease resistance. No need to dead-head either.
