Hello Sweetie

Our first sunflower of the season.



A couple of weeks earlier than last year, very welcome but bittersweet.

  2. Yours are ahead of mine. Mind, yours were planted earlier. Will have to send you a pic of Ollie's sunflowers when they open in the next couple of weeks.

  3. My sunflowers are not in bloom yet. About 5 foot high and heading up nicely. Will break my golden rule.. and post a picture of a flower when it does bloom. For Ollie.

  4. Thank you Matron. I think I need to follow Rebsie and Flummery into plant breeding. I claimed these sunflowers were "1m tall, multi-headed/stemmed"; hmm, the genetics lied! I also have a couple of plants that have reached 5 foot on a single stem {g}

  5. mine are exactly as you said on the label and growing well. They've not unfurled their sunshine yellow yet but I shall take some pics for you as soon as they do. It's very special that you shared them x

  6. Hi Nic, we definitely need to save some seeds from yours then, 'cos it sounds like you got the well-behaved genes and Matron and I got the unruly ones!
