Last year the sunflowers I grew didn’t do too well sadly as many of them got ravaged by slugs and snails. I hope that they’ll do much better this year, and I’ll growing plenty of my favourite knee-high Music Box along with some taller, colourful Ring of Fire.
I’ll also be growing some Infrared F1, which has bi-colour shaded flowers, and Valentine, with lemon-yellow flowers and dark chocolate centres. These Debs, who lives in north Devon, sent me along with this lovely sunflower card. We did a seed swap as I sent her some Ring of Fire and pot marigolds Flighty’s Favourites.
As well as showing photos here I’ll also be posting them on The Big Sunflower Project for Centronuclear and Myotubular Myopathy Facebook page which I’ve been supporting for several years.
At home on the windowsill I’ll hopefully be growing a sunflower Music Box in a 5 “/13 cm pot again as I did last year.
Take care, and have a good week!
