Sunflower Success

Yay, Success with sunflowers!  Some things I learned:  They germinate really quickly.  Start seeds inside the middle of may.  The ground has to be a certain temp for them to thrive.   When you plant the outside, cover with soda bottles to protect from bugs, bunnies and to create a greenhouse.  They need to be fenced in or you will be feeding the bunnies their morning breakfast everyday!  I put down ladybugs to keep the bugs away.  They don't need much water once they start growing.  Don't plant mamouth unless u r using these for privacy, you only get one flower.
