Along with many others I took the initial lockdown here to get ahead on some gardening and I planted all our seeds at the end of March. The sunflowers germinated quickly and when they were big enough I planted them out alongside our neighbours’ garage. They evidently like this position because they’ve been growing like weeds! As of today they’re about eighteen inches taller than Kevin (who is just over six foot tall) and the first flower has emerged over the last few days. Who knows how much taller they’ll grow, but I think we can count these triffids as a roaring success!
