I was given 4 sunflowers by a friend at the end of May - we potted them on, put them in a sunny spot and hoped for the best.
Well they grew - taller than me (which is not difficult to do!)
And over the past four days the first one flowered.
If you are a regular follower of this blog you know we had sunflowers at our wedding, so a favourite here. The seeds I planted straight into the soil did absolutely nothing, so next year I must remember to pot some up inside first if I can hope to match this year's success.
