haven’t been as good as I had hoped due mostly to numerous slugs and snails taking their toll.
Thankfully the ones that did survive and flower have been buzzing with bees most days.
Still to come are two self-sown ones which are by far the tallest ones this year. One is over 7 ft/2 mt and is multi-headed with around twenty flower stems and buds for much of the way down the main stem.
The other one is over 8 ft/2.5 mt with just one bud at the top of the stem, and I
wonder how big this flower will be. This sunflower has grown nestling against the side of the dogwood.
Following on from last Thursday’s On the windowsill post the 12 in/30 cm tall sunflower in a 5 in pot flowered at the weekend.
I have been really delighted with this plant and especially the flower.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
