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 
sunflowers in
the rest of the bed this summer, since the ground is empty.
