How exciting! Malay- Kadazan girl has invited me to partake in the seed exchange she runs on her blog. this is her blog sunflower seed exchange and she has the most beautiful bronze and different coloured sunflowers. I have not had much success with sunflowers in the past, so hope I win some of her seeds to give them a try in my garden.
The plant I have had success with is loofahs! I was most excited to hear that they would grow in this area and last year I grew the angled loofah. This year I planted them to grow up the pigeon peas and they have now entangled themselves into the shade cloth and grown off toward the fence - taking over the whole area. They have a pretty yellow flower.
I am also posting this on the how to find great plants carnival see here for other submissions appalachianfeet hosts this monthly
