Letís talk helianthus annuus, the state flower of Kansas and national flower of Ukraine and the subject for many a beautiful picture or painting!

Who here grows them regularly? Who wants a bit of friendly competition? Who wants to see who can grow the biggest, or tallest?

Iíve never tried my hand at gardening so Iíll need some pointers! Heck, I donít even know when they flower...

If youíre keen to get involved just register your interest here and weíll go from there! They can make good photo subjects too so why not, right?!

5inch pot, compost, 1 seed. invert a 5inch pot over it and leave on kitchen windowsill. Have a look now and then. plant it out when the frosts have finished. Once it's a strapping plant, feed it with Guinness.

There we go! Now no one (not even me) has an excuse not to join in!

I'm envisaging a "one for you, one for me" scenario with the Guinness!

It made no sense to me that but we have some seeds here but they're for miniature sunflowers so guess I'll not win!!
