Flippin' 'Eck

 
A couple of weeks back I wrote about a freaky Sunflower growing in our garden that my son Oliver had planted that has 9 flowers growing on a single stem. Well knock me down with a cabbage leaf & call me a burnt omelette ... I've been to check up on it today & it's got a further 5 buds appearing ... yes ... 5 buds. That'll be 14 flower heads ... that's if the gale-force wind forecast for tomorrow doesn't send it hurtling down the street.
Off to seek out the World Record for number of flowers on a single sunflower plant ... we could have a winner.

OOoh this is amazing. Unfortunately died. It was fine when it was inside but just wasn't hardy enough to go outside and snuffed it. I think next years I'll just start it outside and see if that works better. Never mind, we are having the fence replaced anyway so that would have been a nightmare anyhoo.

Love your gardening blog and so happy that you have made a living from something you love to do. Long may it continue :)

Love Mandy xxx
