This strip has been in for two years now. 

Last winter it was full of tweety birds. This July the farmer mowed the whole lot and it has come back very well. I particularly love the Chicory.

Did he not reseed it? Do sunflowers re-grow if cut?

This looks like one of the two year crops we have, but the sunflowers did not grow in year two.

No he didn't 're seed it. The sunflowers are perennials.

OK. Thanks.  You learn something new every day! Apparently Sunflowers can be annuals or perennials! The small late flowering ones (as per photo) are perennials. Maybe ours didn't grow because the deer took a likening to them?

The farm where we have our syndicate has planted about 60 acres of wild bird seed and nectar rich crops under a stewardship scheme. They are full of small birds and insects. We also have the advantage that they hold Pheasants really well.

 

One of my farms is putting down 25 acres to wild bird seed can not wait just so nice to see.
