The sun flowers were excellent, admired by our visitors who remarked about the unusual colour. I am saving seeds to hand out to my friends and will be planting some for my own garden

They all germinated well and we had a super display of them.

I bought a lot of different seeds from Sarah Raven this year thinking I was treating myself to good quality seeds. Unfortunately a very small proportion of them germinated. The seedlings I have purchased were sxcellent!

This is the first year I have tried these. I planted in modules and have rather more plants than expected - now forming a 6 foot wall of flowers. H. Valentine has done best and is much better than expected - it is a wonderful deep variegated marmalade co lour - not yellow at all and the flowers are considerably larger than Claret (very glamorous) or Vanilla (which is a bit feeble in comparison).
