Tomorrow is one of the 2 major guerrilla gardening festivals in the northern hemisphere. So grab some friends, some sunflower seeds & a pointy stick/pencil/dibber & get planting here & abouts. Sorry if what I have written doesn't make too much sense I have concussion.

Brilliant. So far this year I've guerrilla planted loads of apple seeds and borage seeds but I'll give the sunflowers a go :flower:

There was enough of a break in the wet weather for me to plant some so the local gay scene may look that little bit prettier

My sunflowers aren't looking too healthy this year for some reason. They're still alive though so maybe they'll pick up!

Found an old packet of seeds so I've put them into some pots. They've not done anything yet but they were in the potting shed. I've brought them into the conservatory now, where it's much warmer.
