How I grow sunflowers in Malaysia

My green heart sunflowers were started from seeds from Miruku's Garden. I have just harvested 4 flower heads of sunflowers, each giving me about 200 seeds which amounts to more than 800 seeds. 
  • This sunflower has a bright yellow outer petals and a green centre.
  • The flower head is about 10-15 cm diameter
  • The plant can grow to about 4-5 ft tall.
My grateful thanks to Miruku for this precious Gift. Now I wish to pass this on to other gardeners.

If there is anyone in Malaysia who wish to grow sunflowers from seed in your garden, I can send some to you by ordinary mail . These are my fresh home saved seeds. All you have to do is email me ( your postal address. 

I have already announced this on my Facebook page and the first batch of seeds had been mailed out.

Here's how I grow sunflowers from seeds:

The Beautiful Garden at Seen Hock Yeen Temple in Chemor, Perak


I am pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem, a magnificient temple with majestic structures, intricately designed and crafted statues and a beautifully landscaped garden complete with lotus and koi ponds, artificial water-falls, rock formations, pagodas and summer pavilions. I visited this place in June 2011 but only get to write a blog post about it now.

The Seen Hock Yeen Temple is located off the Chemor-Sg Siput main road on 1.2 ha of former tin mining land in the town of Chemor, a sleepy hollow about 20 km north of Ipoh.

This temple is managed by a team of volunteers from Chemor town and nearby villages.
