I sow the seeds of these sunflower late March. Now, after 6 months, they are blooming.
I believe sunflower seeds are the easiest to germinate. All those seeds that I sow sprouted but eventually after being planted in the garden bed, many of time couldn't survive the lack of water last summer. Only about 7 of them grew but two were better perhaps thanks to their getting enough moisture from the birthbath.
The two things I like most about sunflower are that their pretty face looks so cheerful in the sun and that they can be grown in both tropical and subtropical climate.
And here's an update photo of the gift I've got from a friend.
I was worrying about this little plant so much but thanks goodness, it's growing and looks healthy enough to sustain.
I'm now waiting anxiously to see the bloom of this little one!
