Growing local

Some of my sunflowers are blooming. Planted a while ago for my GV but the 40deg days really slowed them down

Like me, they are late bloomers...

Janet I plan on feeding them to my quail and chooks. They love sunflower seeds.

Your garden is always very inspiring Doug. Do you harvest the sunflower seeds?

I just bought 4 different packets from bunnings. Think some were dwarf but cant remember the varieties as I have thrown out the packets. Only 1/2 are flowering, it will look amazing when they all bloom

They are beautiful Doug, are they a dwarf variety, if so would you mind telling me which one. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely, it reminds me of a few years back when we visited family at Clifton on the Darling Down and walked between the rows, they were as tall as us.
