Growing Oriental Poppies from Bare Root Starts. 4.21.18
Ten to 12 food sunflowers are huge. I'd like to see those.
I've only grown sunflowers once and they were not that tall. I remember my dad growing them when I was quite young, and I remember climbing them. They seemed 10 to 12 feet tall to me, but may not have been.
A pity, Kathy!
I Googled lemon queen.sunflowers annual and this is what I found. It is an heirloom, open pollinator, annual, reseeds.
Helianthus "Lemon Queen" is a perennial. I grew this one several years ago and had it removed when I designed my four axis meditation garden. I think I will put in another one. It was very pretty and attracted butterflies, if I remember correctly. It likes clay soil. I think I will sow some mullein seeds as companion plants. A nice yellow patch in my garden.
Kathy, how tall are yours?
These look perfect for my garden next year .
More people who think that it's a tame rabbit!
My short story: A few days ago, I saw a young man walking with his small son. They stopped where the black bunny was eating, looked at it and talked. I was in the house so couldn't hear what they were saying.
That sounds good, Kathy, and colourful too! Can you post a picture of your garden?
That one mole has kept you busy, Randall! Let's hope his family won't come to your yard to look for him..
Here it's still hot, too hot for the time of year and too hot for me. For the next week 80 degrees F. or higher, just when everyone seems ready for autumn. The hollyhocks dried out and the stalks are full of spiderwebs.
How about a mole story? I've been after one all summer long. FINALLY, I caught it in the act (although I've caught it in the act before and somehow missed him). I simply use a shovel and flip it (him or her) out. My dog ended its life quickly. Crunch. Now, perhaps, my yard can repair itself. One good thing, the mole never made it to the garden. Voles, however, have. They;re eating my sweet potatoes. It's always something.
