This is a review of growing Giganteous from Park seed. It actually is an F2 selection where I grew some out and picked the seeds from the largest flower to plant the following year. This thing got huge from growing in the compost pile. Next year, I will do the same thing by growing an assortment of seeds from this one and a few others to encourage genetic diversity and hardiness. The parent to this giant sunflower was not this big so I believe each seed is a little different from the parent and we will see various different results meaning I will grow enough to increase the chances of getting what I am looking for in a giant sunflower.
Sunflowers too Pretty to Cut
I will wait for seeds so I can grow more of these ruffly rosy blush toned sunflowers. They seem too pretty to cut but if I had plenty more I would make a lovely bouquet for the table!
