Great to hear you got it going on Mark Brunnr ! Do you have any pictures to share?

@Mike Haasal I was also wondering what kind of shrubs do you grow inside and outside the fence to hide it?

What type of plants do you grow ?

Do you see deer prints on the outside of the fence?

What would you recommend doing differently for someone wanting to do this?

Hi Matt, if you square up on shipping we'll take care of everything from there. Are you in the US?

Anyone tried to put their squirrels to work? If the trick worked, can you tell us what kind of squirrels they probably were and in what state you are?

Tiny seeds, good for wildlife.  Very powerful grower for us.



What do you mean powerfull grower, that it's good in all type of soil ? Could it be used as human food, or is it too small in your opinion? I'm looking for a sunflower that would be perennial and could yield enough for human consumption.

What has worked with potency in holding back / beating out grass...
Comfrey, Turkish Rocket, Rhubarb, Sorrel, Sweet Cicely, Giant Perennial Sunflower, Jerusalem Artichokes, Elderberry



What is this giant perennial sunflower you're talkigna bout? Seems pretty interesting. Does it have huge seed heads and yield?
