The backyard turned into a zinnia-jungle during our summer vacation.

  1. Hi Ingrid! Your garden looks really wonderful! I love zinnias too, they are amazing, but please.. tell me your secret to grow them so happy and healthy. Maybe the weather here in Argentina is too humid for them? Or do you add something special to the soil? Need urgently some advice, as spring will be here soon....
    Love,
    Miriam

    1. Hola Miriam! I've sown the Zinnia seeds directly into the garden soil and clay soil we have here in Dordrecht. I've planted them so close together, so that they support each other... I hope they will bloom in your garden soon! Good luck and it was so very nice meeting you Xx Ingrid

    2. Thanks Ingrid!! If this year my zinnias grew half as beautiful as yours, I'd be very happy!! Last summer was a burning one, so all the flowers suffered a lot and did not bloom as expected.
      It was very very nice meeting you too. Regret missing a photo with you.
      xoxo

  2. I love finding my garden again when I come back from holidays. Like an old friend who was waiting for you. And have to get to know it again.

  4. Prachtig, ook een favoriete bloem van mij. Helaas is het me niet gelukt ze als plant te kopen. Kreeg als commentaar als ik er naar vroeg 'oh dat is een heel ouderwetse plant'. Dus helaas niet in de mode Ingrid... Volgend jaar zelf zaaien dus. Waar koop jij de zaden?

    1. Ja het zijn super ouderwetse boeren bloemen! de Zinnia zaadjes kocht ik bij Vreeken Zaden in Dordrecht. Ik kocht meerdere soorten en heb ze door elkaar gezaaid. Ja leuk hoor om in je eigen tuin te zaaien en vervolgens te plukken :)
