Well, well, well, I tried growing big sunflowers from seed twice so far - once last year and once this year. My seedlings seem to be very popular with some inhabitants of our garden and never go past 2cm (never mind 2m!) mark...
We are now on our 3rd go - all prepared: seed compost, label, vermiculite and... trifle pot! To keep the unwanted visitors off our seedlings!
Wish us luck, more updates in coming weeks.
