hi all

found all your comments quite interesting,as this is the first year i've grown sunflowers,having picked up a packet of the Teddy Bear  variety to get grand kids involved, my interest picked up where theirs waned,i put half-a-dozen against a fencing panel,and planted sweet pea,s inbetween and around them,i added a 8ft beanpole to the tallest when it got above the panel andit seems like almost a daily task undoing the ties and moving the pole up,,yesterday,whilst balanced on tiptoeee with one foot on the hen house and the other on the paneli had to measure it 14ft 2" i think thankfully its starting to bend its head,if only it could have a week of sunshine,just added pole to another(10ft) s'peas are looking great twisting round them using them as supports which is good job as they are 8-9ft

Stand "toilet roll tubes" into a 6 portion modular tray,,gives roots a great start as they like the depth, then plant the whole tube when ready,,Tube should dis-integrate with time also the cardboard helps to retain moisture
