I have my first ever sunflower growing tall and proud in my little veggie garden. It is so cheery and bright you just cannot miss it. I planted quite a number of them, but sadly I grew quite impatient and pulled them all out except for 2, now I am kicking myself for not having some self control and patience. As the saying goes "all good things come to those who wait" next year I am definitely going to be patient and watch these beautiful flowers grow into tall majestic golden suns. Happy gardening.


  1. Hello Sarah, what a lovely sunflower, although it seems strange to me that it is growing at Christmas.

    I hope you are well and have not been affected by the flooding and bad weather. I'm afraid my geography of Australia is poor, so I don't know what things are like outside of Queensland, which we hear a lot about on the news.

  2. Hi Karin,
    All is well where I live. I am in Sydney, NSW quite a long way from the floods. My family live quite close and I have relatives who are stuck in there homes due to flooding in Brisbane, Queensland.
    I have finally taken the sunflowers out they were slowly dying! We have had such warm weather everything is growing wild, I am having a pumpkin takeover at the moment.
    Hope all is well on your side of the world.

  3. I echo what Karin said and although it seems odd to me to see a lovely sunflower in December, I am totally jealous!!
    I just adore them! Do they attract any of your native birds once they run to seed?
