Sunflower Challenge, Sunday, 7/17/16, Anyone Interested?




Category: Gardening | Posted: Sun Jul 17, 2016 2:16 pm

Thought I would post some pictures of my efforts to save the seeds from the 10 footer. As you can see, I ended up with a full pint far of seeds.

I was wondering what I was going to do with all the seeds and then I had an idea. What if I shared them and next year a few of us tried to grow them? Would anyone out there be up for the challenge? It would be fun to see how they grow elsewhere.

E-G, I'm hoping that several of the folks will take you up on the offer of seeds and next season we'll have several folks growing 'E-G's sunflowers'...

Thanks Hank. I think I'll post it to one of the forums early next year. It might be seen by more members that way.

I've never had luck growing Sunflowers here. Too many field mice and chipmonks I think.

Great idea EG! I would post about it in the Plant and Seed Exchange forum also for maximum visibility:
