She said: "I am only 4 ft 11 so everything looks tall next to me!

"We have always loved gardening and growing veg, had an allotment on next door’s land. This is the first time we have grown this many."

When asked how they look after their sunflowers, Lyn said, "They like LOTS of water and we feed them every couple of weeks . They are an amazing plant and are one of my favourites. They are edible, and you can dry the seeds for next year."

The couple have also gifted their neighbours sunflowers which "they are very happy with".

She added: "The neighbours were very happy. They all have them in pots at the front, so at the moment everywhere you look, there is a sunflower."
