polka(7b/8a E TX)August 24, 2005


Am new to this portion of GardenWeb. Usually am in the orchid area.


I'm wanting to improve the doubleness of my zinnias.

I have semi-doubles -- the kind that start out single, then a few more ray-flowers [petals] in the center as the flower is aging.

Will the seed from these ray flowers more likely be double?

What proceedure do you recommend on increasing doublness in my zinnia patch next year??



a.k.a Polka

ps if you wish to e-mail me, rather than here, I'm have a bit of trouble with my e-mail

please try rexulmer@juno.com thanks
