We have grown them for years, in our village every child is given a pumpkin and sunflower seed to set :) I find the best place is in the boarder next to the drain pipe. Our record is 15ft i think

I've had some really bad batches of seeds this year! None of my Wilkos cucumbers, pumpkins or courgettes have germinated (maybe they cross pollinated) my dahlia tubers were in bits and now my Russian giant #sunflower #seeds are rotten and cracked... 🙏 please grow
