Thought I'd share this here because I thought it was cool . So after an infestation of ants and aphids and a very sick looking sunflower followed by terrible winds and bad waterlogged ground in the beautiful north east england weather . My sunflower looked like it was starting to thrive again . Then wallop , wind snapped it in half . I left the plant still semi attached and it started to wilt and die , I thought theres no coming back from that ! Then a week later I came home from work , checked all my plants and this seemingly immortal sunflower just wont give up the plight to live . So I thought I'd share because I found it very cool just how tough these sunflowers are !
