Never tried sunflowers, I like daffodils and bluebells.

AngelWood you do not have to buy the giant sunflowers. You can buy multi-headed sunflowers which are about 2ft tall

Are they still going Tom? I bought a heating system from them in 1984.

Yes but not as well known because of all the devilments in central and more and more ' one man bands' that can do it cheaper, When I worked for them they were aiming to take over the Gas board as the Number one heating installer and service Team, They failed and became
just another choice

Im sure thats the guy who measured up my house prior to having to central heating fitted by Servowarm in the mid 1980's. Was his name John Barker?

Could have been sorry, he was always just John or JJ but if ever wonted his attention I would called him Mr Servowarm
