Nice start. What part of the country/ zone do you live in?

I attempted to grow some Mammoth Sunflowers last year and failed. It just got to hot and dry. I also think I didn't prepare the soil well enough.

Good luck and keep us updated.

Really, really nice. Be sure to post another pic when the others open.

I've got two Mammoths going, no flower yet but they are abut 6' high.
