I have now arounf 8 sunflowers heading towards the 9 feet range,all grown from seed in small pots in February this year,absolutly amazing to see such giants from a small seed,1 in particular has developed around 10 budding heads on the same plant.

    I have a large garden in France and grow lots of roses and flowers and vegetables. There are lots of fields round here full of sunflowers which are so pretty when they are out, their yellow heads follow the sun, but they don't last very long.
