      It looks like it's playing hide and seek Ours are flowering before getting very tall. Been a strange year weatherwise I guess.

        I've no flowers yet, they usually follow the sun don't they?
        If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

            I sowed giant sunflowers this year, packet said they could grow to 14 feet high - and they are flowering at 5foot. On the plus side, it looks like they might be about to develop multiple flower heads which are forming at the junction of main stem and the leaf stalks. At first I wondered if it was a labelling mix up in the seed packing factory, but I think Mr B has hit the nail on the head! ( either that, or we got our seeds from the same place)

              Haha, I love it that the sunflower is sulking

              I also have sown Giant sunflowers, mine are just above 5'2" - I say that because being that height, I had to gently bend them yesterday to check if there was any sign of flowers coming

              .... which also tells you everything about whether I have flowers yet, haha

                Our sunflowers are starting to form heads so I don't expect significant heights.

                I watched a you tube video at the weekend and an 'expert' suggested you prune out the side shoots (much like a tomato plant), so that you got one massive flower head.
                We're going to try that, but I fear everything is late and stunted. Lets see what mother nature does in the coming weeks.
