@jeatacake I thought they might catch your eye 😉 I’m guessing they’re not ready yet?

Ha ha ha! You know me too well! I think they need to dry out a little more, but if the rain persists, that might have to be done with them detached & somewhere dry!

@jeatacake oh you can decapitate them and they’ll be viable? If that’s the case I’ll do that with them all 😜

I think they look mature enough. What you could do is gouge out a seed, one of the bigger ones. If it looks like the seed inside the outer shell has formed properly, then it should be fine to give it the chop & dry it out 👍

@kez001uk So should the sunflowers become headless to get their seeds? Good luck with yours and your seeds. I'll let my sunfowers bloom and enjoy the holidays first. Maybe l can send you some for next year 😁😊

Sadly no. A more brown coloured one did, whose variety name I forget, but otherwise, a bad year for sunflowers in my garden 😕

You're an angel Kerry, thank you. Made a few slip ups with them this year. Will get my act together next year! ☺

@jeatacake you’re allowed a slip up once in a while 😉 just means they’ll be extra good next year 😁
