hi, I have been growing a couple of sunflowers on my window ledge, they havent yet flowered, I only planted them roughly a month ago, my plan is to give em to my gran for her birthday in a few weeks.
However, one of them fell over a couple of days ago, and now the other is doing the same, they are both... lol, about the length of a jaffa cake box :P (cant find ruler heh)
I water them every couple of days.
Ive heard that lack of sunlight can cause this, and it hasnt been particularly sunny in the last few weeks here so could that affect it ?
I decided to put a couple of stakes in to keep em upright but only have one, so for the other one I have simply put a toilet roll tube around it to keep it upright, is that a good idea ? or will it likely make things worse ?
