Sunflowers – Slugs and Cat Do Their Best…

….to prevent us having sunflowers!   One down due to slug damage, one down due to the cat digging it up.  grrr. 

We have planted four new seeds straight into the ground outside in order to replace these two gone and we will keep the two best ones when they come up.   In the mean time I have put back the bits to stop the cat getting to them, and added some more anti-slug gravel.   While we were at it we put in some steaks and tied up the remaining ones.  

They don’t seem to have grown much over the last week, but then maybe they have enough to cope with now they are outside and no longer in the nice warm house.
