"My sunflower is bigger than yours!" insist Hereford couple Horace and Dianne Taylor
ONE couple believe they have a sunflower to rival all others in their Hereford garden.
Horace and Dianne Taylor, from the Holmer area of Hereford, said big sunflowers often grow in their garden but believe the beautiful summer has contributed to the size of this one, which is 7ft tall with a head the size of a dinner plate.
Dianne, aged 76, said: “We didn’t plant it so I think the birds must have flown over and dropped the seeds.
“It’s quite amazing. We’ve had big ones grow in our garden before but this one beats them.
“I haven’t really done anything different. I always water and spray the plants, but I think the amount of rain and sun we’ve had over the last few months has really helped.”
