I grew these for the grandchildren and luckily there were 5 really good ones so that meant one each and one for me...lol

I'm growing sunflowers this year too and am delighted with the way they attract the bees. I've planted them in the ground and they are about 4 - 5 feet tall. Don't want them any taller in my small garden. That's a great idea to keep the seed heads to feed the birds, I'll try that too!

Beautiful photo & your gdn looks perfect. Mine looks a bit muddle compared to yours, but perhaps we shouldn't compare as we all have our different plots.

Sunflowers are irresistible. For years I have had a selection from the mixed seed I put out for the birds. This is the first year there have been none :-( I blame the squirrel!!!

The last squirrel I saw was red, so he is forgiven!
