Meanwhile at home…

the tomato Little Sun is nearly 24″/60 cm and has some flowers showing at the top.

The tomato Tiny Tim is about 15″/38 cm and flowers are just starting to appear.


I’m pleased that the pot marigold Oopsy Daisy  has flowered, although the petals are rather pale and thin. It  has several more buds showing which hopefully will be better. I also have a second, smaller plant.


I’ll probably try growing a couple of these again next year.



The small sunflower that I kept at home and re-potted has reached 6″/15 cm and now flowered.  Based on the golden-orange colour of them I think that it’s a Sonja, which in the ground should reach 48″/120 cm,  and not a Musicbox.   It looks like this plant is a conjoined twin as the stem split into two at 3″/7.5 cm high, each topped with a flower that’s only about 1″/2.5 cm across.

I wonder if I’ll get any seed from them, and if I do I’ll try growing a couple like this again next year.

Take care, and have a good weekend!

    The Oopsy Daisy Marigold has a delightfully playful flower, a really sweet plant. The tomatoes are responding well and it is interesting to see what your Sunflower unknown, unknowns, are turning out to actually be. xxx

    It’s incredible to see them all flowering when still so little in size!
