Thanks GG. It really performed well last year and surprised me with the amount of flowers. Thou it had spent the previous 2 years in a pot being moved aroun my garden. Im hoping now that it has settled that it will do just as well or better this year.

Online seed suppliers?

Ive been spending the evening browsing the usual well known seed suppliers (Thompson Morgan, Fothergills etc) in preperation for placing orders for this years flower seeds.

But do any of you have a favourite online seed supplier that you would recommend? I'd rather support one of the smaller companies if possible.

Each year me and my little boy plant giant sunflower seeds and compete to see who can grow the tallest (he always wins!).

This year I'd also like to plant a couple of alternate varieties as well, perhaps something a different colour. Can anyone recommend any varieties that have grown well for them please?
