Our Forums Have Closed

Hi, Everyone,

We have decided to close the Almanac forums.

The good news: Now you have the ability to comment on the www.Almanac.com Web site pages!

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Sincerely,
The Old Farmer's Almanac

And best of all,

the critters should leave that alone till the crop matures!

You can save any uneaten seed for the deer, or a few for planting next year, to help be sure you get some!

I like to try and grow the biggest ones I can.

Planted those seeds for 12 footers but they never got over 9 feet :(

You grow them in a pot and stand the pot on a pile of bricks 3 ft high then you will have 12 ft sunflowers. Easy YB what say you?
