Anybody else growing sunflowers?
On a whim I bought some sunflower seeds earlier this year. I've never grown them before and thought it might be fun as we have a south facing fence with a bit of trellis on top and I thought a row of sunflowers would look nice. I can't remember what variety they were and I gave the rest of the seeds to the local community garden still in the packet so I have no record. I'm sure I would have chosen ones that were destined to be about 6' tall so that the heads could just sit in front of the trellis.
Well, I have certainly got a lot more than I bargained for!!
They are so tall now that we had to add an extension stick to hold the top up and even if I stand on a little step stool I can't reach high enough to tie them in any more.
