you clearly have a passion for these giants. Do you save the seed for the following year?

Wow!! Fantastic pics! Thanks for sharing with us! As Eileen mentioned, do you save the seeds?

Yes, the amaranth I have been growing and saving seed since 2006. These multi-headed sunflowers I have been breeding 8 years.
