Most of the Giant Sunflowers (pictured left / photo taken 1st Nov) are on their way out. So sad!
Photo Below: taken 1st Oct.
Teddy Bear Sunflowers, although the shortest in height of any sunflowers I've seen, brought some colour to the borders. (Photo taken 1st Oct).
Pictured with Aster.
I'm not too fussed about growing Teddy Bear again. They were 'ok'.
Below: At 1st Nov, they're in need of removal. (I put the flower heads on the hedge etc for the birds).

The red 'Autumn Beauty' Sunflower seeds grew but never flowered - perhaps enjoyed by the slugs and snails!
