I have planted three types of sunflower seed this year with the hope of growing them just beyond the fence at the bottom of the garden where the bindweed used to be. These are the varieties I have planted:
Harlequin F1 hybrid
I am looking forward to seeing these in flower early in the summer. The seedlings are already doing well in the compost pots on the patio. I have two worries about where I am planting them... one being that the bindweed may get it's clutches on them and kill them and the other being that the school children who frequently 'hang' around outside the garden may pick them! We will see.
Keep checking back for some lovely pictures of sunflowers in the future..
