Imagine all the massive sunflowers, bright and swaying in the breeze, towering over our heads! We sowed an impressive collection of giant sunflower varieties and, instead of choosing one to share, we let them all cross and to bring even more glorious diversity to you! The name ‘They Might Be Giants’ is both an homage to a band we’re fond of (!) as well as perhaps an understatement: Friends, these sunflowers will most assuredly dwarf everything around them, lol ~
Like all sunflowers, more nutrients will inspire more height, so if you’re visioning 15+ foot tall sunflowers, sow them with a shovel of extra compost and stand back.
A cross between many different giant sunflowers, They Might Be Giants v.1 is a beautiful bridge moving beyond the ‘fixed-traits’ of ‘variety’ expectations in our time, part of Fruition’s See(d)ing the Change project, as are are YOU! Together, we are sowing the world we dream of, where deliciousness and diversity are embraced, amplifying the beauty and abundance that is resistance as well as resilience. Learn more here!
We save their seeds — so can you, we hope you do! — and so can your great-great-great grandchildren, too ~
