      We've sown 'Titan' which are already coming along quite nicely in the windowsill, one each for myself, hubby and the little ones. We are having a little family competition to see who's grows the tallest, so far daddy is in the lead!
      But, the one I'm most looking forward to are the little 'teddy bear' sunflowers. I've never grown them before, but thought they looked quite sweet and cheerful.

                    Martin the over looking got stopped when the 6ft fencing went up besides the bases...before that i used to have the odd moment of an elderly neighbours head pop up on the fence :roflol:

                        Loki that's what as most likely put me off them, as that's all i've ever seen the huge and yellow ones plus many years ago...School having me do them :gaah:
