Since April of 2015, I’ve been trying to grow my own sunflowers! I get the big long stems but never any buds- this year, I even posted about them on here they started growing really nice and then when they got a little taller I moved them to my boyfriends block. He added a little more dirt and BOOM! I FINALLY HAVE A SUNFLOWER. Truly, this makes me so happy. There are some more pics down below so you can see how big the stem is as well.
