Grocery store flowers

These are multiple plants sitting in a lot of rather small pots.  Around here people buy a lot of plants that are ready-made, kind of like microwavable food. No time or patience to wait for something to grow from seed. I admit to doing that with perrenials such as salvia or succulents or pelargoniums.  Right now I'm doing a silly little experiment to see if I can plant a zinnia in August and get it from seed to flower before it gets too cold. I think I'll be okay with the temperatures but the shortening daylight may be the limiting factor.
