Where the chickens were kept over winter was pretty poached ground.
When I moved the chickens I didn't want the docks and nettles to take over so I set about growing some crops to compost later on and move the fertility of that patch into the compost and then onto my garden.
One of those crops was sunflowers, now to get the best from them I was supposed to harvested them semi mature and compost them.
Well they grew so well down there I've just let them flower and they look amazing! These guys like chicken manure that's for sure!
Even though it means less compost for next year, who wouldn't want to bring armfuls of these beautiful flowers back to the house! We've got hundreds of plants growing down there and each is wanting to flower.
I think the house is going to be very pretty for the next few days!
What's your favourite flower to grow to cut for the house?
