Same here mate ....my health gets me down
Bird food sunflowers have popped up lets hope the mice leave them alone.
I noticed sunflower plants for sale in the hardware store a few days ago. They were in bloom . I thought they only flowered late summer.
Were they small bulky ones? They are used as repeat flowering bedding plants now
I've just got some free seeds from www.plantapot.info. They're a sunflower called Evening Sun. Is it too late to get them going?
Hi Fern no its not too late get them put in.
Ok thanks mate. I'll do it tomorrow as it's raining here now.
Looking back on last years thread Fern i planted mine a little later on, i will probably pick some more red ones up in the coming days and plant some more. Tallest sunflower and largest head challenge 2017
Mine that came free are these ones by Mr Fothergills I've never grown these red ones before. It says on the packet that they grow to 6ft so I doubt I'll get a really tall one.
The red ones look very nice, it doesn't matter how big they grow this thread is only a a bit of fun i will look forward to seeing them
They were in individual pots with one flower head per plant. Would they still be good for Bees and Butterflies if used as bedding plants?
Luciusmaximus weather there is one or two in parts or ground...the bees and bufferflies will still be attracted
Potted a few up and planted some out one tray are red ones, granddaughters getting excited .
Martin she seems happy enough enjoying your garden mate
Sunflowers are poor this year a couple have started flowering the bees was enjoying them late this evening.
