Multiple Headed Sunflowers

Posted: 30/08/2013 at 23:54

Thank you for your replies   It's great to hear so many of us have done well with our sunflowers this year!  I wonder if it being a good year weather wise with a good mix of sun and rain has helped. Just brightens the day seeing them when I open the curtains in the morning!  Great idea to save the seeds for the birds too Zoomer44, I hadn't thought to do that!   

Multiple Headed Sunflowers

Hello,

I have several sunflowers in my garden which I planted from a packet of Unwins Giant Single Sunflowers; a couple of which have grown multiple heads on.  I've attached a photograph of one which has 16 heads on it.  I just wondered out of interest if this is usual or anyone else has had this happen with theirs. I'm quite new to gardening, although I have grown sunflowers before and never had this happen.  It was a lovely surprise to have so many flowers come out on the one plant!
