    Managed to uproot it and nothing untoward to my untrained eye to see in the roots. By the way, does anyone know which sunflower this is? Some time ago I bought a lot of mixed seeds and don't have the name. It's really nice, or would be, with it's multi-branching nature.

      I used Bird Seed from Wilko to grow mine this season.

        Well now, I removed all the side-branches with buds close to emerging from the wilting plant, put them in water, and, as you can see, they're nearly all out.
