many thanks for your honest comments on the swallowtail
here is a dark sunflower, Chris found the seeds on a sunflower in La Rochelle's botanical garden
. now we are glad to have it in our garden!
results are mixed... we got a striped one, this very dark one and one of the same red as the flower it came from. Two didn't survive and two aren't open yet.
The birds will be allowed a comparative study of the flavours later on in the year
I think my goldfinches are qualified judges. If your country does allow me to send seeds to you please feel free to ask later on.
