I have a small inner city place, equipped with a rather spacially restricted balcony. The latest obsession is filling this space with green delight and this blog is intended to bear witness to my feeble green thumb attempts.

Whatever Happens to Naughty Sunflowers?
You may remember this cheeky yellow volunteer from posts such as this one. He never asked to join Mum's garden, he just picked his spot and took it over. Not that she minded, he was pretty and yellow and tall and made a wonderful impromptu stake for the shadecloth. But I think the relationship went sour.
Was it the fact he turned brown? Was it the fear of being overrun next season by his babies? Was it a vendetta by the vincas?
Whatever the case, this serves a warning to all sunflowers who wish to take up residence in my Mum's garden - your days are short, sweet, but definitely numbered. Although if you want a longer life come to the balcony garden (BYO pot and potting mix, we're running awfully low)
