I’ll be growing plenty of sunflowers…

next year including the wonderful Ring of Fire, which did so well this year.

As I’ve done in recent years they’ll be grown in support of the The Big Sunflower Project, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

I recently updated my webpage there writing about how I did with sunflowers this year and what varieties I’ll be growing next year.

I’m also hoping that I’ll have some blooms to enter at the horticultural society’s annual show in early September.

Have a good weekend!

    What a beautiful photo. And lovely to remember what summer looks like! I really love the dark red ones, although I know you’re not keen, and I think I shall try and grow some of them next year. CJ xx
