How could I be so ignorant

A friend of mine got me several flower seeds. I was in ecstasy. These days even nurseries do not sell. I sowed them and they all came up. Least did it occur to me that there is a season for flowers. These seeds belonged to another season. They have come up but the flowers are stunted. The image shows stunted zinnias. I am only hoping that the seeds I get from these flowers will yield better results. Any mishaps that you can report?

The flowers still look beautiful though so don't beat yourself too much about it. I don't have any mishaps for today that I can report though.

This is how a zinnia should look

Most things dying? That's about the limit of my experience.

But one flower bloomed in your garden - a post of yours said that. That is the beginning to put fire in your system

@JudyEv To each their own. Your flame must be fully on elsewhere.

@allknowing lol I only have a red rose plant a the moment and I love it when the flowers come out. My parents are very good and experienced with the garden and the flowers.

As long as the flowers look good than there is no problem.

No gardener will be satisfied if the results are not as per norms.

No worries I am probably the worst Gardner around. I planted some kind of Lily flowers that also grow where you are too and at the moment they are shrivelled up with the very very cold weather. I donĀ“t do nothing to them and they just keep coming back. Third time they will flower this year some time. Not now but soon very soon. Zinnias are supposed to be flowers of happiness and childhood that is all I do know.
