I feed all birds and they always leave me a gift of Sunflowers. I have hundreds of sunflowers, just from birdseed.

By birds dropping seeds in my yard, I have 2 hollyhock plants that bloom beautifully (one's a light lemon color & one is a pretty lavendar color) every Summer, in our front yard. Then in the Autumn, the hollyhock bottom plant (bush that looks like a squash plant) gets all green and lush again. All thanks to some most welcome birdies!!
Just love the gifts they leave us!!
I just moved from a house that I used to grow 1oo hundred sunflowers each year. I am sad I left everything there, including all the seeds I saved. Would you be so kind to send me some seeds to get started. Maybe you can send those birds my way. jk:) email@example.com
hey beachers, did you move from Tennessee?
There was a house around here that was up for sale last fall with a field full of these giant yellow wonders.
Eralier this year while cleaning out the feeders I dumped the old seeds into a few empty posts from past year. I know have some budding plants which I believe to be sunflower. I plan on transplanting them into the field nest to the house.
I love sunflowers! I just don't seem 2 have any luck. I get them growing just 2 where they're gonna bloom n something happens. 1 year it was the rain. The next it was winds. I'm gonna try again next year. wish me luck, all.
After years of feeding the birds, I got my first surprise sunflowers this year and I am loving them. They blooms are drooping though. Is this normal, there are no seeds yet or did I get some sort of "confused" flowers from the birdseed?
