    Buy them again next year.
  • Received three Sunbelievable plugs today 



    ...and potted them



    My question is, how bug do they normally get? What size of permanent pot would they require? No place to plant them out unfortunately.

    It's pretty easy to take cuttings from some 'annuals', like petunias or diascias. Or keep them going in a greenhouse over winter. A lot of plants are treated as annuals in the Uk that would be more perennial in their native country.
  • Mines have already been propagated @Fire 😆 but thanks anyway

    Didn't you get plant info on the sellers websites 
    One website says one to a 8 inch pot or 3 to a 15 inch

    They are indeed, happy with my purchase ☺️ 
    Hope to keep them alive to get the promised “hundreds of flowers” per plant 😅

    This is what the plug plants shown previously look like now



    Interestingly two of the plants have flowers with the brown circle in the middle, and one is completely yellow. 

    They were advertised as producing up to a hundred flowers per plant in one season but I don’t think these will be that prolific.

  • Just did the first dead heading and counted 135 finished flowers between 3 plants. And they are still in full flower. 



    And they smell like real sunflowers too
