Frugal Gifts from the Garden


My daughter grew these Zinnias from seeds and gave these two pots full to me for Mother's Day. The seeds came from Dollar General, and were really cheap. Zinnias are one of the easiest flowers to grow from seed. They transplant very easily. If you plant the seeds in the ground and they come up too thick, you can scoop up the individual plants with a spoon and move them where you want them. I filled up two flower beds one year this way! They don't seem to even notice being moved. One pack from the dollar store will make many plants.
