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.

It'll be fine outside -even if it is covered with snow - it's one plant you really don't have to worry about.

My bet is it'll flower next spring ... and yes, you'll notice the flower spike - it'll begin to go upwards like this



only your plant will be bigger and probably have several spikes.


Don't panic when it disappears over the winter - they die right down and reappear in the spring. 

What is this plant please?
