too late?

Thanks for all the great replies. I planted them out, though that windowsill doesn't get loads of sun. They are only dwarf sunflowers not giants.

Hi sorry if this seems like a stupid question. I planted some sunflower seeds last week to see if the seeds were still viable and now I have some seedlings. Is it too late in the season now to plant them out on an outside windowsill? They are inside at the moment and still quite small.

Hello I found this pic on chiltern seed's facebook. I'm waiting for a response from them but just wondered in the meantime if anyone on here knows what plant these flowers belong to?

I'm trying to attract lots of bumblebees for next year and this one seems to be popular looking at the pics.

 These are the only pics so no leaves or nothing.

thanks victoria again and forester. It does look like a stock from what I came up with google. I am going to have a word with the seed supplier as to why the perennial seeds are all turning out to be annuals

Yes your right another one that grew out of the mixed perennial bag. Hmm well it's indoors which accounts for the straggly trailing growth. Why do none of my plants look like the pictures on google? .

Oh well I'll see how long it stays with me. Thanks victoria sponge

Thanks victoria sponge. Matches the flowers when I googled linaria. Just hope I can find it a better spot now.
