We needed new water hoses and I did some research on the new compact hoses.
After scanning the 2000 or so ratings for pocket hoses on Amazon, it sounded like it would work for us.
Pocket hoses are not durable with high water pressure and with big yards. (We don't have either)
I was still a little wary so I bought one at Walmart so it would be easy to return if it was a huge failure.
We've got an unplanted flower bed in the front and I think zinnias will be the easiest and least expensive choice. My husband picked out 4 packs of bright color zinnias. I mixed them all together and planted them in 2 rows this morning.
So hopefully in 6 weeks or so, there will be a hedge of colorful zinnias.
My mom always grew zinnias and I think they are so pretty and make really nice bouquets too.
But I don't see zinnias in other yards much - they used to be in most every yard.
