I know that you are seeing the flowering fields of sunflowers but, those that are planting in "normal" gardens, are not fertilized and produced for mass trade but come from small bags sold in some nursery or, even worse, in some store or generic market.
For this reason, after writing hundreds of articles on flowers and plants (including sunflowers), I decided to test myself by publishing in (almost) direct, flower growth week by week, to share but also to show how much the passion for gardening is beautiful and fun.
Yesterday the whole of northern Italy was afflicted by hail and rather heavy thunderstorms and, given that recently these sunflower seedlings passed from the covered jar to the ground, I was afraid they would not see another day ... Instead, here they are turned towards the sun which it's falling as nothing happened!
But now let's get to the facts:
from week to week I will post a photo of sunflowers, checking their growth, which will generally end between August and September.
Next weekend, June 30th, I will be leaving for the holidays, so subsequent updates could arrive around 8 or 9 July.

Almost three weeks have passed since I took the first photos of sunflowers and, I must say, in the meantime they have grown a lot! We are around half a meter ... so much sun and a few thunderstorms have contributed to the good growth of flowers.
