Sunflowers

Sunflowers are my new favorite flower. I just learned that they are “hyperaccumulators”! They absorb toxins and pollutants so well that thousands were planted in Chernobyl to absorb radiation. They were also planted in Fukushima to clean up that toxic spill.

The trick is to harvest and destroy them before they produce toxic seeds that birds could eat. sunflowers

      1. I didn’t know they detoxified the soil. That is super cool. I can’t wait. A neighbor plants them and I said in the spring I will too. I need to research and see if I need to start them indoors first
