every year as they’re such cheerful flowers, and great for wildlife.
I’ve tried a number of varieties, of varying colours and heights, and really like the knee-high Musicbox that I’ve grown the past couple of years. One advantage of this dwarf variety is that they don’t need staking, unlike taller ones.
The past three years I’ve supported the good cause The Big Sunflower Project with a link over on the right-hand side and posted pictures of sunflowers I’ve grown on the Facebook group page. I’ve also written several guest blog posts on the Projects website, the latest of which was earlier this month.
This year I’ve saved seeds to give to Toni, who will send them to participants next year. It looks like there’ll be well over tw0 thousand Musicbox seeds and nearly five hundred of the yellow unknown variety that appeared. I also hoped to save seeds from the red and yellow Ring of Fire flower heads but the parakeets and/or squirrels got them.
Have a good weekend!
