Growing local

Dear All,


Would anyone please give me some recommendation of growing sunflower? I hope to grow the sunflower that give me large seed, not small one used to feed the bird. Thanks. I checked it in Bunnings and there are some many different varieties.

Thanks, I will have a look. 

The big head Russian  varieties may be what you are looking for.

But I see where the MONGOLIAN GIANT SUNFLOWER may have the biggest seeds.Bondie Seeds has them.But sold out. Guess it's a job for eBay

Thank you very much!

Could always try sprouting some of the bird sunflower seeds you like. Not sure if they're F1 or anything, but they do seem to sprout.

They are usually quite small. I am looking large seed. Thanks.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
