Sunflower Down

Disaster! Came home to find the 2015 giant sunflower on its side.

It makes it a bit easier to measure though… so at 12’6″ it means there was a little bit of growth since the last measurement but I suspect that was mainly in the head opening up fully.

The seed head of the sunflower measures 25cm diameter (approx 10″). This will be dried and distributed to the village sunflower competition competitors next year.

This sunflower was grown from ‘MOH SF 2014’ seed available from Giant Vegetable Seed
