Its April & its time to start the annual sunflower growing thread off again. Anyone can take part, the idea is just to grow the tallest sunflowers on the forum. As usual no prizes, just the kudos of knowing your regal flowers tower over the puny efforts of everyone else :-rofl2

Living so far north my objective as usual is not to trail in last as usual :D

I bought these seeds to try this year. Still in the packet as my usual space in the incubator is full of sweet peas etc. Maybe a windowsill this time to start off. Also I have some seeds saved from last year.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.
