Now, John, I hadn't thought of that. I was assuming that since I got seeds
from someone else's garden that the seeds
would be able to open pollinate, am I wrong? I'll have to start looking. All I know is that an F1 Hybrid seed
isn't going to be true to the parent, right? Also, could I use cheesecloth for bagging or would I actually need paper bags?
Tammy, I spend probably a good 5 hours a day outside during the summer, in a vain attempt to tire-out my kids. I could probably work on a little pollinating while I'm out there... However, I'm not sure how I'll pollinate a 10 foot tall sunflower head...
ROFLOL, I'm glad that I'm not the only one with this concern. I've got a fairly large yard, although no where near a half mile!! I think I will just keep them seperated with lots of attractive plants
in between to distract the bees!!
