The only tough part is that I'm near Phoenix. :) I forget my exact zone but...it's hot.
I love to have fresh flowers in the house but I'd like to grow them myself to save money. I successfully grow a few veggies and herbs but I've never grown flowers, if you don't count the ones built into our desert landscaping (and they're bushes really..nothing I can cut and stick in a vase!). Thanks!!

I'm in zone 7 - central NC - so it's hot here in mid-summer. I've always had great success direct seeding zinnias. They grow all summer, continuing to put out blooms as you cut the flowers, until frost kills them. I have tried several varieties like "Benary's Giant Mix" at Johnny's Selected Seeds. They are gorgeous in a large patch - like a 4'x10' rectangle. Good luck!
