Thank you for this.

I have placed them at strategic points in my garden. I am very fortunate because my garden area approx 100ft by 40ft gets the sun from maybe 9:30 in the morning right through to sunset and the sunflowers are well away from any shaded areas of the garden.

Thanks once again

Hi I am a complete newbie here and total novice to gardening. I bought Sunflowers which were potted in 6" pots and they looked pretty nice.

I followed instructions on the side of the pots, dug down about 4" and placed some compost at the bottom. I am sure I lifted them carefully enough but not sure how careful I should have been.

Anyhow I replanted them in the holes and put in a mixture of compost and soil and patted them down until I thought they were firm enough and then turned on the hose and gacve them a good old soak...oh and I placed some smaill white stones around them to decorate.

The following day the leaves looked as if they have wilted a bit and in my mind the sunflowers maybe dont look as well as they did in the pots.

Oh I placed the 2 sunflowers at differing parts of the garden

HELP!!!!! Have I done something wrong?

What can I do to repair/rectify this?

Any help is much appreciated
