Sunflowers

06/03/2009

In Spanish they’re called girasol  which means turn to the sun –  although the idea that the heads of sunflowers follow the sun is a myth.

True or not, they still look pretty.

These are grown by Mitchell and Webster who specialise in bird seed, marketed under the Top Flite brand.

They start sowing in late spring and the plants grow slowlly until temepratures rise and the plants gain four or five centimetres a day until they get to about two metres when they start to bloom.
