Last few weeks was very sunny and hot, a suitable weather to grow sunflower and corn.
Sunflower in my garden start blooming since late February. It started off with Giant sunflower, followed by bicentenary, teddy bear and Italian white. Taiyo, velvet queen, Mongolian giant and early Russian sunflower will follow next. I haven't decided what to plant after that since i have added 14 more variety to my seed bank. I grow it in succession to prevent it from cross pollinating and to ensure continues bloom.
In the seed catalogue this sunflower look almost white with bright yellow halo surrounding the dark centre but the real sunflower is pale yellow. The colour contrast make this sunflower very attractive, this is one of my favourite.
