So I planted a zillion Zinnia seeds, and while I have a few of these
mostly I have weeds. Why did so few plants come up? Should I start the seeds in pots, transplant, and then heavily mulch? Right now I'm weeding around the plants I have and then laying newspaper and grass clippings around the stems.
This plot has typically done great with Zinnias, although I had the same problem last year. This year, I can't blame it on a lack of rain!
