    Zinnia

    If you want a long bloomer with daisy-like blooms what about Coriopsis?Certain Campanula and Penstemon species bloom for a long time and are hardy. Likewise Salvia greggii and S.microphylla.

    Hi peatfree, ive sown some zinnia, this year for the first time. Ive got some in my tiny plastic makeshift green house, and some out side in the ground, to see which do best. Those in the greenhouse sprouted in 3 days, so maybe it wont be to late to set some more off. Good luck! 02:D
