Joe Wilkes: I’ve got big ‘uns and small ‘uns (different variety). I’m just over 6ft, and they are in quite large planters, but quite happy so far! Sorry about the green backdrop – not helpful I realise.

Bella Grandi: Sunflower update: I now have 2 long window boxes, each with 3 plants and 1 solo plant, so out of 10 seeds that sprouted 6 are very healthy and 1 is touch and go, the others got munched.
