    hummm – crochet or aligator wrestling – think I will go with the aligator wrestling, as I have tried them twice and failed, “Envy” is fab – but I only got one to flowering size last year, I blame the rain :)

    My wife grows these as a cut flowers and they do look pretty spectacular, especially en masse. Zinnia elegans ‘Envy’ is a particularly nice variety with lime green flowers and, dare I say it, is more elegant and modern in look than some of the other varieties. It can be a bit harder to germinate but is well worth the care and attention.

      ‘Envy’ it is then…I’ve bought five different types but missed out ‘Envy’…I shall source some…if it’s good enough for Florist in the Forest then it’s good enough for the Higgledy rabble…

        I’ll tell the wife that, she’ll be pleased, though don’t blame her (or me for that matter!) if they don’t germinate!!
