Sunflowers in 5 gallon buckets
I know this topic has been discussed several times, but I want to revisit it. Last year, I bought some Kong sunflower seeds from Burpee, but never got around to building the bed for them I wanted to. Doesnt look good for me doing it this year either. However, I have a ton of 5 gallon buckets that I grow my tomatoes and eggplants in, so I figured, "what the hell? I wonder if a sunflower will work as well"
These get to be up to 14' tall. Last year, I gave some of the seeds to me friend, and his got to be 11', but he planted them right in the ground
What's everyone's experience w. large sunflowers in vessels?
