Post Sunflowers
I was re-categorising my seeds tonight and came across some sunflower seeds that will need to be planted this year.

Does anyone have any experience growing them around this region?

I Was intending to buy some sunflower seeds this year but never got around to it.

But I still wanted sunflowers and I noticed some in the chicken feed so I popped a few in the ground and this is what I ended up with

We have them growing in the paddock after being "recycled" by the pig :) Pumpkins are doing the same.

Just went out the back grabbed a bucket and made up a batch of seasol to feed the sunflowers.

Walked around the front to find my Sunflowers heads all partaily chewed and lying on the ground
