    What would our world be like for not flowers we would be hungry for sure with no fruits and above ground veggies πŸ™‚ I will continue to grow them by seed to have the bees come to pollinate my garden we eat from just doing my part πŸ™‚

      I tried to grow flowers this summer for the bees, but the birds ate the flowers the minute they blossomed! Oh well… guess I’m taking care of the wildlife in some form…

          I tried to grow sunflowers this year (for the bees and the birds), and the birds dug up the seeds before they had a chance to grow. A few sprouted, but those didn’t last the day!

            I have answered you 3 times on this and I am not sure if you got them or if they just disappeared 😦

            All the ones I plant also went missing 😦 then the ones I add to feeders when dropped on ground start growing real quick so what take the grey stripes lol I too must have lots of wild creatures who sneak around and dig them up the turkeys I am sure are to blame for most I bet πŸ™‚ I will start them in egg cartons or yogurt cups next year I feed them enough corn and seed I love my giant sunflowers for my finch come the cold fall months here in NH

              Haha! I read a great solution on another blog that had this problem. She covered the growing seedlings with some kind of wire (chicken wire??) until the sunflowers were large enough to fend for themselves (six inches tall??).

      I have no idea… I’m pathetic with the names of flowers. But they are one of my favorites! Maybe someone else out there can tell us?
