I loved the Moulin Rouge, was a beauty. Sunflowers are heavy feeders, remember that, they love composted earth and lots of good stuff (LOL). I use turkey poop and compost.
Did you get a chrysalis? Our weather has been strange too. We had a very cold snap for about 2 weeks in November, about 2 feet of snow, (unusual to have this amount, maybe we sometimes get a couple of inches now and then). And now off to warmer, rainy, rainy, rainy. Too cold for the girls here to poke out their heads yet. Only +4 C, which is 39 F. Oh well, warm weather is certainly coming sooner or later, we know that. Great day. Cindi
