Garden Bloggers Bloom Day September 15th

Welcome to Garden Bloggers Bloom Day! September in this USDA Zone 4-5a region on the Northern Plains has been wetter and cooler than average. Annuals respond well to those conditions, especially zinnias in our flowerbeds and in bouquets.

  1. Did impatiens have difficulty with that nasty mildew in your region? We could not get the for quite a while because no one would grow them. When we got some last spring, I was surprised that they were suddenly available, and concerned that they would mildew. They actually did just as well as they always had. I do not know if they are a newer variety that is more resistant to the disease.
