Sunflowers 2010

Russian Giant. Bought a packet of seeds 6 years ago. Never had to buy one since. Wonderful sunflowers.

thank you

i plant around 40 in my small front garden each year, to flower in Aug / Sept. I love to see and hear the small childrens (and adults ) reaction as they go to school. I would love to be known as "that sunflower house".

I sow them all from the previous years seed, in toilet roll trainers, and simply plant the whole thing up. Never fails.

Russian Giant they are called. I've had them grow higher than next doors garage. Great fun. Sow in March / April, but beware of slugs. They love the young plants.
