@MrsBennington Absolutely one of the easiest plants to grow, but I don’t grow them, the birds drop the seeds, and they just pop up all over the place I just pick and choose the ones to keep and the ones to pull in the spring. I don’t have a lot of room left over to grow a lot of sunflowers but I do love the red ones and they’re growing out back but I don’t do anything there are no tips just make sure they get water and they are good to go. Good luck

For some reason this sun flower has found it’s own support in this time of all the storms here in PA.

This just kept producing buds until a wind storm came through and snapped it off!

Hi, Alisons50, I remember you from grow it. Great seeing you at the gardentag app. Welcome. I hate to see grow it go, but, I think I found a new home. Amazing 🌻.

@crabby58 Yes, and I remember you. Nice to see a familiar name, and like you I to think I’ve found a new home, it’s sad, GrowIt made me a administrator for plant community, but I have such a hard time navigating, but I now have both! Lol
