Joyce, you can peg them out on my line ... I've got two and I've only got a couple of pairs of jeans and some socks and undies to go out ... just hold on a minute while I finish cutting the back lawn (I've done the front) ...... there's a nice stiff breeze here so even towels won't take long ...

Won't they have cross-pollinated?  Think orange tends to be dominant so seeds from white will probably be mainly orange.

What about making them (and you) a bog garden   There are some wonderful beautiful bog plants.  It could have a small area of standing water in it but not actually a pond ............

Good morning all  G'day Pat 


A quiet day ahead, a bit of deadheading and also got to get someone to come and service the boiler. It's playing up and the chap we usually have isnt available cos he's gone to work away. We used to have British Gas on annual contract. Will probably go back to them unless anyone had any better recommendations?

Lots of birds will eat the immature seeds - that's partly what I grow sunflowers for. Squirrels will also eat the flowers and seedheads. 


Go on, show us a picture ... I'm sure we've seen worse ... we're not that squeamish 


Don't cut the head off - if it's as I imagine I'm sure  the rest of the seeds will develop normally ... unless eaten.
