Giant Sunflower

September 10th, 2015

Some plants are so easy and great to grow and one of the top contenders for the most impressive plant to grow has got to be the Giant sunflower. Planted outside in a warm sunny spot  in May, and kept watered  through the summer they can easily reach 12ft in height.  In the autumn after the flowers have faded away, we are left with these impressive flower heads, filled with seeds. Hung on the bird table ,it is amazing to see the Tits and other finches pick these seed heads clean.

If there are children about, growing sunflowers is a really great way to interest them in gardening and adding a competitive edge to it ,as who can grow the tallest sunflower maintains the interest throughout the summer.

It only took approx four months to grow this
