Neutral WayOutMan On Jul 5, 2009, WayOutMan from Thomasville, NC wrote:

Out of 13 Burpee Signature seeds only 6 popped up after sowing in the amended area. The packaging states to thin them 12-18 inches apart, but I would suggest at least 24" because I have two growing side-by-side at 20" apart, and they are mammoth in size so-far.

Staying neutral until I see that bloom color...

...pretty sunflower to look out the kitchen and see. Was expecting the bloom to be a different color than yellow (packet had apricot/pink petals with a dark center). Wish all of the ones planted sprouted, but that all in gardening. . I also cut a few and they are doing well my mom said after a week so far...Enjoy the pictures! :)
