Seeds to Sunflowers

August 3, 2012

 

When I bought a packet of sunflower seeds from Goodwill for 49 cents, I hardly expected anything out of them. I’ve heard growing flowers – or anything for that matter – was exceptionally difficult when you are basically starting from scratch. Since I’m no avid gardener, I decided to start with something that required little-to-no work.

Ok I’ll be honest, it’s mainly because I’m lazy.

Lo and behold, in 2 months’ time, my baby sunflower seeds went from this…

 

 

… to this…

 

{those aren’t weeds next to my sunflowers, those are “wildflowers” – i promise.}

It may look like I know what I’m doing, but I really don’t. I guess I just happened to plant them at the right time (end of May), in the right place (constant sun exposure), and I also pulled the dead leaves off before they killed the entire plant. No fertilizers, either!

Oh, and the hot Florida sun and daily afternoon thunderstorms help, too.

    Their recognition with holidaymakers imply that they offer every one of the features you could desire from a sunlight getaway – amazing resorts, restaurants supplying a wide selection of top notch cuisines and a big selection of water
    sports are simply a number of the destinations that keep Brits coming back below year in year out.
