~ a gardening and allotment notebook
Wow, those are amazingly tall!p.s. not sure I've commented here before, just hidden in the shadows. Hello :)the-urban-cottage.blogspot.co.uk
Welcome Jenny - so glad that you have come out into the sunshine to comment :) They were indeed incredibly tall and I wish that I had been able to ask the gardener of the house just what they had been fed on. Will be over to visit you soon.
that is very tall isnt it - it amazes me that they dont fall over or get blown down with the wind
One of life's mysteries Helen :)
It's huge. Have you measured it?
I would have asked the gardener of the garden it was growing in how tall it was Jo but did not have an opportunity to do so :)
Incredible! (Or is that greenhouse deceptively small? ;-) )
Nope Cathy - a case of what you see is what you get :)
Amazing! Are you sure they weren't magic seeds and there isn't a giant at the top somewhere?!
Maybe the seeds had been dusted with magic Su but no giant in sight :)
Is this in your own garden, Anna? Wonderful pic
Thanks Annette. These sunflowers were not in our garden I'm sad to say but in the garden of the campsite in Shropshire where we recently stayed for a couple of nights.
Oo what a whopper
Thanks for visiting and commenting Elaine :)
Astonishing, Anna - but quite ugly in their hugeness, don't you think? ;)
Oh no ugliness Cathy as far as I was concerned - their sunny faces on a rainy day were so cheery and their size a great talking point :)
Wow, that's staggering! I forgot to sow sunflowers this year in time, apart from the diminutive Vanilla Ice, we're definitely missing them. Sara
Me too Sara - will have to remedy that omission when it comes to the next lot of seed orders :)
I guess we've all sown the seeds of 'Russian giant', probably when we were schoolkids. I suppose there's a kick to be had in growing a large beast like this.
Great fun for kids Rob and a real show stopper on a camp site. I imagine that sunflowers would do well in your neck of the woods :)
All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at : firstname.lastname@example.orgNamasté- Anna.
