I save my seeds as much as possible each year and I can’t wait to get them in the ground. Where we live it is still possible to have a spring frost up until mid-March. I will wait …. if you plant your sunflower seeds around the sprinkler poles in the garden they get lots of water and grow really tall and big. This is not the biggest sunflower I have ever grown… but it might be the most beautiful picture of a sunflower that I have ever taken. The little moth was extra, I probably didn’t even see it.
