|Photo: Successive Plantings of Sunflowers|
The sunflowers are blooming against the fence. I used last year's harvest of sunflower seeds. The new flowers are smaller in size, and it is probably due to lack of consistent watering and over crowding. I just threw a bunch of seeds in a row and covered it with soil.
I actually prefer the smaller sunflower heads for floral arrangements. I planted a new row of sunflowers right in front of the old one. I am staggering the plantings so that I can have a wall of continuous blooms.
