Sunflowers can be allelopathic to weeds and some crops, I've read. Has
anyone planted them among their fruit trees? If so, what results have you
had? I have a 50 foot long bed I prepared and thickly mulched to hold dwarf
and miniature fruit trees. So far, I only have a Compact Stella cherry and
a dwarf Shipova planted there. I'd like to plant giant and cutting
the rest of the bed this summer, since the ground is empty.
