Thought i would share a picture of my sunflowers which are going strong they germinated about a week and half ago there about an inch high now
Sowed mine today Mikey so they should be up in about a week then? (Hopefully)
Mine are planted out, they were outgrowing their pots.
Right off to sow some more sunflowers, mine are a 'no show' from a couple of weeks ago...
Mikey, I've got some outside, some in GH and now some on windowsill!
2 different packets, one Wilko other local nursery, but not labelled them
Mikey, sunflowers grow very quickly, when they get another pair of leaves, re pot them in 3 inch flower pots, I sow mine in pots to start with, saves root disturbance.
Just a little advise, fill your trays with a bit more compost, sometimes the seedlings will stretch to reach the light above the tray, leading to leggy seedlings.
Sowed mine last weekend, moonwalker came up first. I always have trouble with dwarf sunflowers germinating, this years no exception, only one has popped it's head up.
I sowed these on 11th March don't know when I should plant them out. I've got some more seeds
which I think I'll plant straight out in the ground
Got mine in the ground. Just looking to avoid Slugs which have already eaten my
Planted my sunflowers yesterday; Single Giant type. I do love them and so do the birds.
I don't like to leave them until they're too big as the stems seem to be weaker and more likely to snap. I just so plenty so when some are inevitably eaten I'm not not bothered.
or even *sow!
I bought some more sunflower seeds the other day, just because I needed them!!! I now have 4 different varieties sown but only did them on Sunday, all in my GH so will expect to see some sign of new life in about a week - 10 days. Sunflowers are the one thing I have managed to grow successfully in the past and I love them, almost as much as Orchids and Daffodils
