Halliwell man grows 10-foot sunflower

First published in News

GREEN fingered Harold Burgoyne has grown a towering sunflower which puts him in the shade.

Mr Burgoyne grew the 10ft plant on his allotment in Avenue Street Halliwell.

Tips for growing a sunflower include choosing a well-drained location and putting seeds in a spot that is sheltered from strong winds, such as along a fence or near to a building.

I grow sun flowers called Russian Giants,I've never had one over seven feet tall,what I find amusing is that some of my sunflower seeds fell over the wall onto my neighbor's property the seeds fell between the paving stones.My neighbors are not gardeners,I am,the amusing part is that my sunflowers are about four feet high theirs are about eight feet high.

There's quite a lot of Vietnamese indoor gardeners in Bolton who have pioneered mass cultivation in semi's. Maybe, they should try sunflowers?
